Kris Frederick of Madison, WI has been training hard under the guidance of Run SMART coach Janet Bawcom since this past June. We’re excited to report big progress and a new PR at the Wineglass Marathon. Kris also achieved a BQ and improved his personal best by 13-minutes with an official time of 3:18:33. [Full Results]
After the race he talked about what it was like to train with Janet:
Janet was very interested in making sure that I understood the workouts and kept encouraging me throughout the training. The best part about the training program was that I could see it building and could tell that I was getting stronger, which gave me confidence that I could perform on race day. By following the plan, I was able to run faster than predicted, not only breaking my marathon PR by 13-minutes, but also besting the Boston Qualifying standard by 6.5 minutes.
