“I Have Never Felt So Strong In A Marathon Before”

Jack Daniels Training Plan customer Kristin Garcia set a new PR at Grandma’s Marathon this past weekend and finished just 12 seconds shy of cracking the 3-hour barrier! Her official time was 3:00:11, which was over an 11-minute PR. [Official results]

Even better was how she paced herself throughout. Below she was kind enough to let us share her feedback from the race:

I was able to even split the race with my half being 1:29:45. I passed about 45 people from mile 19 to the finish. I have never felt so strong in a marathon before, it was an awesome race for me! Thank you so much for all of your help!

“Because Of Her I’ve Seen My Abilities Skyrocket”

Run SMART client James McKirdy of New Britain, CT was kind enough to let us share his thoughtful words about his coach Alvina Begay. This kind of stuff makes our week! We love our staff and clients.

I just wanted to send an email to the staff to let everyone know how grateful I am to be working with Alvina.  I started with her just after the New Year and it’s been a full 5 months I think.  I came in with a background in running, I’m a professional trainer and have been in the health industry for just about a decade.  I’m not one to gloat on my own successes, but I will say she’s done an amazing job with me thus far.

I’ve been training for the Philly Marathon in November later this year and never really tackled running in quite this way before.  She’s a great coach and because of her, I’ve seen my abilities sky rocket.  In fact, I’d actually say I’ve only had one bad workout and that’s when it was 93 and 95% Humidity.  Aside from that, even though she’s half a light year away, she’s incredibly accessible and very supportive.

Big PR At The Derby!

Jack Daniels Training Plan customer Katherine McClain (at left) of Louisville, KY broke her goal of breaking the 1:30 half marathon barrier at the Kentucky Derby Mini Marathon. She ended up running 1:25:44, finishing 9th overall female and 2nd in my age group.

“Needless to say, I am one happy girl! Thanks to the JD Training Plan, I beat my previous half marathon PR by about 9 minutes (1:34:47). Thank you again for your help and I have already recommended this program to my family and friends!”
