so I've signed myself up for a half marathon in August. It's a mountain terrain course through grizzly habitat and we have 5 hours to cross the finish, after wich they come out on ATV's and haul your ass off the mountain in an attempt to save you from getting eaten. lol. I'm not worried about finishing in the alloted time, but I'de like to do better than limping across the line at the last minute. I've always jogged kind of casually for my own pleasure, but I've never run toward a goal. We have about 3.5 feet of snow and -20 weather here right now so I'm running on a flat track inside twice a week. I'm up to about 7km in 40 to 45 minutes. I want to get out and run hills, but the snow wont go away here till sometime in May and I'm worried I won't be ready in time. Any suggestions or hints? Oh, I also do 1 hour of boot camp (core and strength training with some cardio thrown in) twice a week and yoga when I can...

Didn't get to do this one, but I did know some people that went. Their suggestion is to run the half, not the full. The half has quite a bit of excitement with the strip, but the full goes out into the desert w/o support and/or as much support.
