I am new to running. my goal was to run a 5k. i lost 90 lbs and decided last year i was going to complete 12 races. well i did 15. 12 5k's 1 4 mile, 1 5 mile and the last one on 11/15/2015 15th race was a 15k. when i crossed the finish line i looked at my friend and said "half marathon is only 4 more miles" so this year i decided to complete a half marathon. then in Jan i was dealing with severe foot pain. found out i had planter fascitis and a bone spur. had surgery. was told it would be 6 mos to heal. since then i have completed a few 5ks but so afraid to do the half. I haven't been able to train as also found out i have arthritis in my knees. any advice
