“I’ve Stayed Injury-Free For The Last 15-Weeks”

Brooke Watson of Olathe, KS is a happy customer…

I decided to use the personal coaching services for my fall 2018 season. I was assigned Coach Gary Berard. Right out of the gate, I noticed changes to my usual training: 1) my speed work mileage was increased, but encompassed a broader range of paces; 2) my rest days were also increased.

I found the app easy to use and Gary was great about responding to email. Sometimes we had to make adjustments for schedule changes or weather, and he was very agreeable. Which is great for a working, single mother!

And the outcome of all the training was fantastic!!! I’ve stayed injury-free for the last 15-weeks of training and had a lot of success!

My greatest achievement was to PR by over a minute in my 10k on a very challenging course and by over THREE minutes in my half marathon. I also ran my fastest pace in a 5k (6:17) on a challenging and long course.

I enjoyed the quality professional instruction you get for a great price with this program!

Lifetime Milestone Achieved

Thank you Run S.M.A.R.T for helping me achieve a milestone marker in my life.  I never thought I was a “runner” who could make it 13.1 miles, yet on Sunday I did just that.  Not only that, but i met my goal of finishing with a time better than 10 min miles.  It wasn’t the best run but it was perfect just the same.

This result could not have happened to a nicer, more dedicated athlete. We love coaching Stephanie because she’s consistent and doesn’t miss a beat. All her hard work has paid off.

“The craziest part is that I still had extra left in the tank as I was sprinting to the finish! I never hit a wall, didn’t feel nauseous, and didn’t have any of my normal hip and leg aches and pains. What a day!” – Stephanie
