KC Cohen’s Comeback Continues

Run SMART client KC Cohen ran 1:39:04 (7:33 per mile) at the Brooklyn Half Marathon this past weekend (results). In only her second race since major ankle surgery last year, KC ran three minutes and forty-seven seconds faster than her last half marathon two years ago!

KC’s coach was impressed… “It’s only been about six weeks since I started incorporating quality sessions into KC’s weekly schedules. She’s only gotten up to 10 miles in one run twice since her surgery so this was very encouraging. I expect big improvements to come over the next several months – she’s just getting started,” said her coach, Brian Rosetti.

John Robinson Goes From 20:45 To 18:40 In 5k

Run SMART client John Robinson of Savannah, GA, set a 5k PRĀ  over the weekend, running 18:40 to win his age group and place 4th overall at the CrimeStoppers Azalea Run 5k in Savannah. (Full Results)

“Great PR for John today,” said his coach Mike Smith. “He had been hanging out right around 19:00 since the fall but we knew he could take another chunk off of that in the right race. He focused on racing those around him, which proves that often when you just concentrate on competing the time will take care of itself.”
