This past Memorial Day weekend at Eglin Air Force Base, Florida, Run SMART client Ilea Eskildsen won the Gate-to-Gate 4.4 mile race for the second year in a row. Better yet, she ran one minute and 16 seconds faster than her winning performance last year. Congrats to Ilea and her Run SMART coach, Dr. Jack Daniels, who she’s been working with for just over one year now.
“I don’t have too much of a time goal for this race because of the distance (4.4 miles) not being normal and the hills,” said Eskildsen, who is a first lieutenant in the Defense Threat Reduction Agency at Eglin. “So, I just wanted to run my hardest and I’m happy with that.” (nwfdailynews.com)
