Jack Daniels’ Training Plan customer Henry Jungling broke his longtime goal of running sub-4 in the marathon. This past weekend at the Bemidji Blue Ox Marathon the 66-year old from Aplington, IA got his Boston Qualifier with a 3:58:21, finishing 4th in his age group. [Full Results]
After the race his son was kind enough to share his results and pass along some feedback.
His previous PR was 4:12:xx but he had struggled in his last two marathons and after a disappointing Dallas marathon last December, almost gave up on his dream of a sub-4 and a BQ time. On Saturday, he ran a 3:58:21 and qualified for Boston at the age of 66!He said he felt the training left him feeling strong and fresh on race day as opposed to previous years where he felt a little beat down.
