Oh, HECK NO! Ken.

When Husband first ran the half, he came in just a hair under two hours. That was his goal, and he'd basically not trained. He's the long, slender legged type, and in his 40 year old arrogance, figured his playing tennis would suffice for training.

He made goal, and could barely walk for a week.

Now, he starts in January, and the race is Father's Day weekend. If he shaved 1/2 minute off his time, that's a celebration. He assumes, and rightly, that as he approaches 60 and beyond, the times will slow.
