At the 2010 DRC Half Marathon, Brian Schmidt took home the masters title finishing 9th overall in 1:15:19 (full results). Just last year in the same race, Brian was second masters finisher in a time of 1:17:10. Usually, when you hit the masters division it’s all about who can slow down the slowest but in Brian’s case, at 41 years old, he’s still improving. Just this past spring we reported his new 10k PR, a 10 second improvement from his previous best set at age 39.
All of these age-defying accomplishments are in part a result of Brian’s long-term commitment working with Run SMART coach Blake Boldon. They have formed a wonderful partnership and we look forward to seeing more great results.
