Before I undertake a major endeavor, I like to be informed. I like to know what I'm getting myself into so I headed to the bookstore to peruse some books on running. I flipped through several in the store and finally purchased the following two books:

The Complete Book of Running for Women
by Claire Kowalchik

Absolute Beginner's Guide to Half-Marathon Training by Heather Hedrick

I found both of them to be informative and each offered several training schedules. I haven't decided which one to follow just yet nor have I selected my first race to train for. I think there will be a 5K here in town at the end of April during the Twilight Criterium.
