Back in January we wrote that Run SMART client Rob DeLong sets a PR every time he steps foot in a race. Clearly, he didn’t feel pressured because this weekend he lowered his half marathon time for the third time in four months and set a new 10k PR in route!
On a pretty rolling course at the D.C. Rock ‘N Roll Half Marathon Delong finished in 1:44:16 (7:58 per mile). [Full results] This was the first time he ever cracked 8:00 per mile in a half. One year ago his half marathon PR was 1:57:30. This steady progress has him on track to reach his goal in Boston next month.
DeLong works with Run SMART coach Brian Rosetti.
