Why going from a 5K to Half Marathon isn’t as hard as you think

Ever run a 5K before? If so you can run a Half Marathon. Here’s why…..

Plan a 3 mile (5K) running course that starts at your house. Now you’ve run those 3 miles and need to get home, what are you gonna do? You’re 3 miles from home are you really going to call for a ride back? No, you’re going to either run or walk (or a combo of both) back home. There, you just ran 6 miles.

If you can run 6 miles, you can run a Half Marathon.

Go do it…….




Disclaimer: Make sure to give yourself enough time to train for 13.1 miles. This article is intended strictly for getting past the mental hurdle of going from a 5K to a Half Marathon and not being advertised as a training plan. If you need a plan, here you go.

  1. I love your thinking… I pretty much went from couch to half marathon 3 years ago and this year, I’m jumping right into a 70.3 Ironman! I think big goals inspire us to do things we never thought possible. Go do it!! 🙂

    • That’s awesome! I can appreciate that thinking. I feel like your mental state is equally as important as your physical ability. If you really feel like you can accomplish a goal, it will get done.
