I'm hoping HC will chime in and let me know if its a reasonable race schedule.

I'm running a 10k this Sunday (2/5)
2/26 10k
3/17 10k
4/1 10 miler
4/28 1/2 marathon

For the last 1 1/2 months, I've been doing a long run on the weekends and slowly increasing the distance and furthest I've gone so far 11.5 miles.
Looks good to me. And you still have time to notch a couple of 13+ mile runs.

You've got them space far enough apart to gauge progress and running a 10 miler (or 15K) that far out will give you a good predictor of your half marathon time. (assuming similar weather and course profile)
