Everett Hill has been working with Run SMART coach Vince Sherry for almost three years now. He has turned 50 since and is still setting new personal bests over a variety of distances. Just three weeks after setting a new half marathon PR in Nashville, Everett ran his fastest 5k ever in 23:54 at the Alpharetta 5k, dropping 37 seconds off of his previous best.
After Vince forwarded Everett’s results I did a quick search since it seems like Everett runs a PR every time he signs up for a race. I just mentioned his two most recent PRs, then there was the 8-minute PR at the Marine Corps Marathon last year, and a PR for 7k here, and his PR in the infamous sauna that was the 2008 Chicago Marathon here, or how about his first 5k PR under Vince here, or his 24-minute PR at PF Chang’s Marathon here, and of course his first PR with Run SMART here. The man is an inspiration to many – and now consider the fact that less than 7 years ago in New York City he was on life support after 8 hours of open heart surgery during the largest blackout in history.
