Run SMART Project Athlete Qualifies for Boston Marathon

On Sunday, October 7th Avi Kravitz did what few could do during the Chicago Marathon… He set a 17 minute PR. The high temperatures for the day (an 88 degree high) made it hard for many athletes to even finish the race. Avi’s initial goal was to break 3:20:00, in the hope that he would be able to get another shot at the Boston qualifier of 3:10:00 early next year. The early pace felt so easy that Avi decided to go on and give it what he had, splitting several sub 7 minute miles along the way. He finished in a final time of 3:10:32, which was good enough to qualify him for the Boston Marathon in the spring.
