How To Realistically Train For A Half Marathon

We love how Rashell tells it like it is. No fartleks, no complicated plan, just one simple bit of advice for training for your first half marathon.

So you're thinking "maybe it's time for me to take the next step (literally) and do my first half marathon". First step, read Rashell's advice (Rashell Habib, news.com.au) because whether it's your first or 100th half marathon this is one bit of advice you will need to pull out nearly every run...every day.
