Two Run SMART clients and one coach competed in the NYRR Manhattan Half Marathon this past weekend in Central Park. Weather was great – 37 degrees, 5mph winds and the rain held off until later in the day!
Hector Rivera, who used the race as a workout by running tempo pace for several miles, still managed to finish third place overall in 1:09:55 (5:20 per mile) and first in his age group by almost 4 minutes! Hector is coached by Dr. Jack Daniels.
Cathrine Wolden, the latest addition to The Run SMART Project, finished 1st in her age group in 1:26:17 (6:35 per mile). Although Run SMART can’t take credit for Cathrine’s latest performance, I felt it was important to note and look forward to seeing her progress this year as she prepares for the Boston and New York City Marathons. Cathrine has begun working with Run SMART coach Alicia Shay.
And last and least, Run SMART founder Brian Rosetti competing in his first half marathon and first race in 5 years, finished in 1:19:27 (6:03 per mile), which was good enough to reach his goal of gaining a guaranteed entry into the ING New York City Marathon this November.
