Melissa Ralph set a PR last weekend by breaking 4 hours at the. Her official time was 3:54:59. It’s also important to note that Melissa ran a 10k PR for the first 10k of the race, which included a 12 minute mile to start, thanks to a bad position in the corral. She has huge PR’s ahead of her! Congrats to Melissa and her coach Blake Boldon.

Congratulations! As part of finishing a marathon, most people want to kick back, eat a lot of junk food and drink a lot alcohol to celebrate. However, the first 24-48 hours after a marathon, your body is trying so hard to rebuild itself….so treat it well!
Run SMART client Everett Hill set an 8 Minute PR at the Marine Corps Marathon today. Everett’s chip time was 4:00:32, check out his splits. The most impressive part about his race was the perfect pacing job he did, coming through the half point just under 2 hours and running evenly over the last half on a course that is considerably harder over the last 13 miles. Congrats to Everett on the new PR and also for being named ThinkFastMoveFaster.com’s Featured Athlete of the Week. Everett is coached by Vince Sherry.
