Thumbs up Congratulations

That's a great goal.

Wishing you many happy miles of training.

352 days is plenty of time to get ready, although, admittedly, it's ten months less than the gestation period of an elephant, for what it's worth.

How far is a half marathon? And how long do people usually train? That is pretty awesome! Definitely some good motivation to keep you on plan!
