    Hey all, Just wanted to get some advice on some race goals for this year. I am planning on doing my
    first 1/2IM at the beginning of september this year, and would like to also do a marathon at the end
    of September. The marathon will be my 4th one, so I am prepared for the mileage there. Just wanted
    to know how long after the 1/2IM I'll need to rest before keeping up with the marathon mileage. Any
    suggestions on how to fit the 2 training programs together? I realize its hard to assess someone
    else's ability, but has anyone had similar schedules, and what has worked for you?

    Thanks, Rob
