My first half … Should my longest run be 12 miles or 11 miles – 2 weeks before the race?
I think you should stick to what your training plan says. 11 miles is good, in some plans you can run 10 miles as the longest run. And 2 weeks before work. Just make sure that you have time to relax and appear on the race day is 100% ready!

What is your favorite movie before the race?
Spirit of the Marathon. Hands down. Amazing.
Are you certified RRCA? Would you do it again? Discussing this to improve my own running technique …
Yes, I passed the RRCA certification a few years ago. It stands for Road Roadners of America. I think it was good! I don't know if all the classes are cool, but I remember how at that time I thought I was lucky and I had a really good teacher.
And the legendary ultra runner Anne Trason – was in my class !! ??! Even if you are not an ultra-runner … she was mentioned several times in the book Born to Run.
Have you ever suffered from IT Band Syndrome? If so, how long can you run again?
Yes. Ugh. It was rough. After my 2nd full marathon … my first race after this race, my knee started to hurt and get worse. I went to the doctor, did an MRI, was sent to a physiotherapist, and I was told that he did not run for 6-8 weeks. I was devastated.
Check out this post for more information: How I suffered a trauma of an IT group syndrome
Remarks: This week I will have a great interview with Amanda from the Run to the Finish podcast! She tells how she went through the trauma while running. And it is super inspiring and gives hope, because it quickly returns to normal!
