Hi – I'm Maggie VanBuskirk, SHAPE's Resident Runner. On May 19th, I'm running the Brooklyn Half Marathon. Three years ago, this was the first half marathon that I ever ran. This year, it'll mark my sixth time completing 13.1 miles.

The Brooklyn course is one of my favorites, and my goal is to run it under two hours (a first!). Tune in here every week to find out just how I plan to do this. I'll share with you my training tips and must-have gear. And then, you can watch me cross the finish line (fingers crossed with a PR) on May 19th in Brooklyn. Follow me on Twitter at@SHAPE_ResRunner
