Of these distances, my absolute favorite is the half-marathon. One small problem though, I have moderate arthritis in my left knee and have a hard time running past 7-8 miles. I've resigned myself to shorter distances, but I'm disappointed that the half-marathon just doesn't seem to be in the cards.
Lately I've been wondering if I might be able to one though, if I planned up front on walking about half of it. Maybe something where I alternated running and walking each mile. I'm not sure if my knee can handle being used for 13.1 miles even if half of it is walking, but then again, I'm not sure that it can't either. I'm also not sure if walking half of it would make me feel more disappointed than just skipping out on it all together. So for now I'm contemplating this as a possibility.
