Moral Support

Don't let the bunny robe fool you, she is as tough as they come and has slept through many miles on the course.

Be honest; if runningyoshi asked to be involved with your race, could you say no?


Running a half marathon is amazing. The feeling that you get from crossing the finish line is a joy like no other! Below are some resources for runners that can help you get ready whether it is your first race or you have been running your entire life. - Hal Higdon has been contributing to Runner's World since the second issue back in 1966. He has written 36 books, is a founding member of the Road Runners Club of America, and set many running records over the course of his career. His website has excellent training information for runners of all skill levels. - There is a sense of community in running, and The Running Forum is an amazing website where you can participate in issues that are important to runners. The forum moderators are friendly, and there is a ton of useful information. - With an app available for the iphone and android devices, makes it much easier to track information during training and workouts. The website also works well with facebook, so you can track a run, share with your friends, and encourage each other to keep improving.

"Running is the greatest metaphor for life, because you get out of it what you put into it."
