September 30th, 2012 is the date for the Maine Marathon and Half Marathon. I am signing up for the half this year. I intended to do the full, but with my husband's work schedule and my kids' activities, there is no way I can get in the mileage each week. The half is doable and if necessary, I can get my miles in at night on the dreadmill. I usually follow Hal Higdon's training schedule for all my races. I like how easy it is to print out his schedules and cross them off as I do it each day. I still may use his plan, but the one above looks like it may work too.
