Good news! My co-worker and I entered the lottery for the local marathon relay and we got picked! The race is at the end of May, so training begins the last week of March. Last weekend I ran an 8-miler in 78 minutes, so I'm hoping that I can do the half marathon in 2 hours or less. I know it can be done!
Since we both work for a medical journal, we picked the team name "Running Titles." I think it's cute, but it brings to mind the SNL celebrity Jeopardy sketch in which the category is "famous titles" and Sean Connery says "I'll take 'famous titties" for $400, Trebek." Hopefully, nobody will make that mistake.
