Subject: RE: Am I ready for 13.1 miles?
I would agree with TRex above. Focus on the shorter races before moving up to the marathon. The challenge to 'finish' a half marathon is not greater than the challenge of running a fast 5 or 10K (fast as defined by you). You probably can 'finish' a half but that really isn't much of an achievement for someone that really likes to run and wants to embrace the SPORT of running.
I would also ensure you have the shinsplints issue taken care of before you starting putting in the mileage for a half marathon.
