If you're thinking about doing a marathon but daunted by the mileage, consider the half-marathon. It's an excellent physical and mental challenge but isn't as demanding on the body or the schedule. Thing is, proper training is a must. "Half-Marathon: You Can Do It" by Jeff Galloway (Meyer & Meyer Sport Ltd., 2006) provides everything that both novice and experienced runners need to know.

At least 35 people were injured after a Greyhound bus crashed in southwest Ohio early Saturday morning, officials said. No one was killed. The bus was carrying 51 passengers an overnight trip from Cincinnati to Detroit when it left the road on Interstate 75 in Butler County at 3:48 a.m., Jeff Galloway, the director of Butler County Emergency Management, told the Los Angeles Times. The bus went down an embankment along the interstate, struck a tree and then rolled over out into a cornfield.

There's a good reason why half-marathons have become the most popular distance in America and why more women are showing up on the starting lines. Actually, it's a "half" good reason: "The half-marathon is a whole lot less wear and tear and a whole lot less time," says Jeff Galloway, a 1972 Olympian and pioneer of the so-called run/walk training program that has helped more than 200,000 people finish marathons and half-marathons. A record number of women -- just more than 1.1 million making up 60% of the finishers -- completed half-marathons in 2012, according to Running USA. Galloway says the half-marathon, 13.1 miles, is especially attractive to women because training doesn't require fancy equipment and is focused on results.

What kind of race makes a marathon seem like a walk in the park? Consider the 12-hour run Aug. 1 at Orange's Fred Kelly Stadium. The race starts at 7 p.m., with runners competing solo or in teams until 7 the next morning. The race was started in 1988 by Don Pycior, longtime Canyon High cross-country coach. Pycior and his wife, Kathy, started a 24-hour run in the 1970s, but phrased it out when the shorter event--relatively speaking--was started and became hugely popular.

Die-hard runners can choose from an assortment of tools to track their progress: sport watches, GPS units and even cellphones with maps and fitness features. Now, a new, run-mapping website has joined the tech melee. At www.mapmyrun.com, which launched last summer, runners and walkers can use Google-mapping technology to plot their routes with a few mouse clicks. The map is accompanied by calculators that spit out information on pace, speed, covered distance and calories burned.

I passed the 23-mile mark and faced yet another steep hill. It was just 3.2 miles to the finish line of the March 3 Los Angeles Marathon, but the streets were lined with wounded runners who would never make it that far. Several sat dejectedly on the curbside, watching us back-of-the-packers. One woman winced as a volunteer tended to her bleeding blisters. Another man cried as he urged his friend to go on without him. I felt a pang of guilt.

The marathon is an imposing event to contemplate, and for good reason. After all, the first man known to have run the distance, Pheidippides, dropped dead after delivering his message of the Greeks' victory over the invading Persians. But that was 490 B.C. These days, with the right training, the 26.2-mile marathon is within reach of anyone in reasonable shape. Working up the right training regimen is the trick.
