Ep 49 Your First Half Marathon and D23 Expo Recap

On this week’s episode of the Rise and Run Podcast we welcome Chris and Jenn; our featured guests joining us for the entire episode. We begin with some quick training updates and then chat about how you might want to tackle the first back to back run weekend for those doing Goofy or Dopey Challenges with 4 miles on Saturday and 13 miles on Sunday. We also discuss some of the big announcements from the D23 Expo this past weekend and we give a rundown of some of the highlights!

With Wine and Dine approaching fast we talk with Chris and Jen about training for half marathons. They discuss why they run this distance and the special goals they have pertaining to them. We also give some tips to someone running their first half marathon. The big consensus is to trust the training.

Jenn’s Goal is to run 50 Half Marathons before she turned 50 at her current pace 150 by 50 is not a far reach.
Chris has run a Half Marathon a month Since Oct 2020, and has a run streak of .99 miles a day since June.
