Kara Goucher is happy and fit. This past summer and fall, Kara built up to 110 miles a week, and with no pain, she is back to giving racing a go. “When Colt (their son), went to school, I went from 4 mile runs to 12 mile runs.” Gradually building her fitness, Kara Goucher has decided to give the marathon a go again. Her last one was in the 2016 Olympic Trials, where she came an oh so close 4th place.

3 years ago I ran the @runrocknroll half marathon in San Antonio as prep for the Olympic Marathon Trials. Well, I’m headed back this weekend! And although I’m not ready to run as fast as I did 3 years ago, I’m super excited to get out there and practice my marathon pace. So hope to see a lot of friendly runner faces on the course and in the race! #rnrsa
Watch for our upcoming interview with Kara. But for now, here is a short video from the NCAA Xc champion and 2 time Olympian (as well as World Champs silver medalist at 10,000m in 2007), has provided three suggestions on how to enjoy your half marathon experience.
