    @higdonmarathon How many marathons a year? A new runner probably should focus on one. Next year: one in spring, one in fall. After that, is there a limit? about 11 hours ago

    @higdonmarathon Between two halfs, back up the number of weeks (8 in your case) of any of my training programs and begin there. https://t.co/r8u9QcjJMp about 16 hours ago
