Episode 11: To Brooklyn and Beyond!

Coach John warms us up with stories from the Paris Marathon, then we get up to tempo pace with a look at this weekend's Brooklyn Half Marathon (including a can't-miss race preview with some hot tips on how to score that PR). We delve into half marathon training in general and how we felt entering our respective first half marathon, so many years ago...

Good luck to everyone running Brooklyn this weekend! Bryan will be volunteering at T-shirt pickup on Wednesday night from 5-10pm, come say hi! And look for the November Project cheer station just after Mile 11, then meet us after the race at Steeplechase Beer Garden in Coney Island!
