Run SMART client John Robinson set another 5k PR this weekend winning the Bluffton 5k in 18:59 on Saturday in Bluffton, SC (full results). J Ro came to the Run S.M.A.R.T. Project just last year with a PR of 20:45. Since joining he has set eight PR’s in distances from 5k to the marathon. Robinson has worked with Run SMART coach Mike Smith since March 2009.
“John’s been able to race more frequent, shorter races this fall and it’s been a lot of fun. We were targeting a PR but hadn’t discussed the fact that he could get the win too, so that was just an added bonus. His training has been great and the frequent racing this fall has allowed him to really dial into these faster paces that we practice. He’s put it all together,” said Mike. “He’s just one of those incredible guys. He does all this with a family, a demanding career and still finds a way to be excellent at all he does.”
Next up for J Ro is the Enmark Savannah Bridge Run on December 4th.
