8 tips for first-time marathoners from Runner's World staffers

If you’ve registered for your first half marathon and you’re following a quality training plan , you’re well on your way to conquering the 13.1-mile distance. Before race day, learn from the experiences (and the mistakes) of experienced half marathoners at Runner ’s World to ensure you’ll finish strong, happy, and eager to sign up for another race. 1.
