10 Things I Learned from Running a Half-Marathon

1.  Dress appropriately (according to the weather)

2.  Wear a good pair of comfortable running shoes.

3.  Use headphones and listen to upbeat music (it will keep you motivated)

4.  Wear a sports belt (with tissue, gu, and whatever else you need)

5.  Use a good chafing balm (like "Body Glide" because you will chaffe!)

6.  Use blister protectors.  They work.

7.  Stop at water/gatorade stations to hydrate.  (very important)

8.  Keep talking to yourself...I can do this, I feel good, I'm almost there...

9.  Train.  Train.  Train.

10.  Take a towel and a change of clothes.  The towel is to sit on (in the car driving home) and the change of clothes because you will be super duper sweaty.
