Last month I ran my first half marathon in San Diego did it in 2:11. Now I just signed up for the LA marathon in March. (Actually, the Concur LA series) I have started training. I have a few shorter races to complete before the marathon -

10k in Santa Monica (Concur LA)
1/2 marathon in Big Bear
5k in Riverside
1/2 marathon in Pasadena (Concur LA)
10k in Redlands

    I have run a couple of halfs and have another targeted in the fall. Your 2:11 was a really good time. Enjoy your upcoming races and good luck in the LA Marathon.
