Longtime Run SMART client, Alex Gardner, set a huge PR this past weekend at the Rock the Parkway Half Marathon in Kansas City, MO. She finished 3rd out of 171 females in the 40-44 age group. Her official time was 1:41:21 (full results), which gives her an automatic qualifying time for the New York City Marathon!
Alex has now set big PRs for 5k, the half marathon and full marathon since she signed up with Run SMART. Her marathon PR was 4:17 when she first started working with coach Vince Sherry. Since then she has run 3:38. Her latest half marathon result translates into a potential low 3:30’s marathon, so we’re looking forward to more big performances from Alex this fall!
