2 halfs in a week????

I need your opinion....can I run two half marathons a week apart?

I mean I think I can, but is it a bad idea? Does it make me a crazy nutter?

I'm registered for the LV Half on April 27. The Frederick Half is May 4.

The reason I want to do the Frederick Half is because if you run both Frederick and Baltimore you get a funky third medal for the Maryland challenge or something like that. And I already had plans to run Baltimore in the fall.

So what do you think? Am I a nutter or is it totally do able?

No, you are not crazy. It's a huge challenge.

I think you can. You might not be able to do your best at both of them but I think you can do it for sure.

A big challenge.. that you can accomplish! :)

I think you can but just don't push on both. Pick which one will be your A race and let the other be for fun.

Go for it — but take care of yourself first. (Yes, I realize I sound like my mother ...)

You can do it. A week is enough recovery time.

Most definitely.. A week is good time to recover. Go for it!

I have to brag that I won the blogger pool...especially since I went from worst to first!

as long as you are careful, and you don't try to race them both, you should be fine.

however, the half is sold out, so i hope you already registered. but i think you can fax them or something?

you could use lehigh valley at a "tune up" race, and frederick as a "real" race.

good luck and be careful!

You might be a little sore and worn out after, but it's doable.

I think you are very well capable of doing 2 half's in one week! Bring it, right?!

Found you through Runners Lounge. It should be no problem with a week in between, now if they were on the same weekend...

I think you can. Not that I ever have, but it should be a nice challenge.
