My Thoughts: I have definitely raced the 5k distance the most. I enjoy a good 10k and I’ve completed 3 full marathons. However, my favorite race distance would have to be the half marathon. There’s something about the combination of required strength, endurance, and speed that make it the ideal race distance for me.
I’ve raced 4 half marathons. My first half marathon was in Knoxville, Tennessee. I trained by myself by running the same loop every day. I ended up running a 2:04. My PR half is on the Red Baron course in Corning, New York: 1:34. I would love to run a 1:30 or faster some day.
