I have been running for a few years now, and this question still bugs me. I asked around with my friends, and got a mix of replies, yes, no, depends, maybe..., you get it.
So, I thought why not ask the community here, a place where I visit often. What's your take on this. If I run 13.1 miles in training, can I say that I have run a half marathon?
I guess. Every time you run 3.1 miles do tell everyone that just ran a 5k?
