I'm currently training for a half marathon coming up January 20th in
Austin, TX.

Think I need to do another half. I tend to avoid distances between 5K and
ultra. A bad habit I’m trying to break. ;-)

I've been doing pretty well. My breath is coming easier and
my body is getting stronger, but I'm having trouble with my right knee
and ankle. It's really frustrating. I know that I would be able to run
farther and faster if it wasn't for that stupid knee. It has always
given me some trouble, and I believe it's been from poor running form
when I was younger that went mostly unnoticed because of padded running
shoes. Since I've switched to running in homemade sandals, I've done
much better with my form but the knee still gives me trouble after 4-5
miles. I'm currently taking a few days break from running (plus I'm just
working too much to find the time). Hopefully that will help along with
adding in cycling and light cross-training. The goal is to one day run
an ultra, but I have to get this knee thing figured out.
 
So anyway, there's my story.

You can only work with what you’ve got. You just have to make the best of
things.  I feel extraordinarily lucky to not have any medical or
biomechanical issues at 62.   Good luck in your half marathon.  Now you’ve
started, why not keep us up to date with your training? ;-)
