Hello, I am an experienced runner and also a certified coach. Unfortunately there are a lot of myths that circulate about training among runners, etc...I love to help people learn about long distance running and how to train properly. I believe it is never too late to start running, but you do need to learn some basics to be successful and prevent injuries. I would love to answer your questions. Please be specific -just send them to

It's great that you're willing to be a resource for people. However I do learn interesting and useful things from the posts here, so I have to say I hope people do not stop posting their running questions here even if they also write you. Thanks for the generous offer.

Hi Blonderunner: I would like some advice about running a marathon. I am currently signed up to do a 1/2 marathon in may. i've never done a marathon before and consider myself somewhat of a novice. If I run the 1/2 marathon in May, could I run a full marathon in October?

How much is too much?

Thanks for the offer to answer questions!

I am a true novice...just started running 9 weeks ago. When I started, I could only jog for 10 minutes. I'm currently up to 4.5 miles (those are my long days). I'm giving myself a year to train for a 1/2 marathon, so I'm really not expecting anything to happen fast. And my time doesn't matter to me- my only goal is that I actually jog the entire way. question. Does it seem reasonable to add about a mile to my long jog every month? I figure if I add 1 mile each month, I'll be up to 14 miles by December and ready for the 1/2 marathon!
