Well done and good luck with the running, it is addictive indeed!

Beginner to Half Marathon?!

You have loads of time.  As above but another option would be follow a 12 week plan but do each week twice, but increase say the long run by 1/2 a mile rather then a full mile so your weekly increase is shorter.

Good luck!! You have picked a good half marathon, not run it but have heard loads of good reviews and if the support and atmosphere is anything like the marathon, you'll find this a mager help with energy and spirit if you feel like you are getting tired.

The stadium finish...but the finish is the best of every run !

Is there a 1:55 pacer? As would love to get under 2hr and sticking with 1:55 can then drop to find the 2 hr pacer if too fast...

I think they have changed the route this year to make it flatter but not sure what hill they have taken out...but the rest is the same

I am trying to forget the hills...and thinking about the rest of the course't the scenery, location and off road that has drawn my attention and love the area.  Good to know it's 30 min to add to PB as this then gives me an idea of what to expect.  I am looking forward to this already and not even signed up can't wait.

According to the website "Online Registration Closes Monday, November 9, 2014 at 11:59 PM PST or sellout" so don't think it's a ballot. Now how fast it will sell out, I don't know.  But if you register on the day it opens then I'd guess you have a good chance.
