VDOT Certified Coach Shares Success Stories

Tim Jones, a newly VDOT Certified coach, got some incredible results this fall with his marathon clients. To be exact, “Six Athletes, Six PRs and Five BQs.”

Earlier this year, I volunteered to coach Tina, Karen, Chris, Mark, Natalie, and Cheryl for fall marathons. I delivered weekly workouts using the Run SMART Project VDOT Coach app and also posted the workouts on Facebook.

Run SMART Project provided the Jack Daniels’ Marathon Training Plan and we set individualized VDOT training paces for each athlete using the VDOT Running Calculator, which is embedded in VDOT Coach. Then we got down to some serious training. We did a lot of workouts and long runs together and it was a blast.
