When Sumner Smith bought a 5k training plan about 10 weeks ago her 5K PR was 21:30 set back in 2004. This past weekend at the Firecracker 5K in Asheville she dropped over a minute off her personal best of seven years running 20:26! She was 2nd female overall and noted afterward the woman she outkicked for 2nd had beaten her by over 20 seconds in a 5k several weeks ago.
Upon reporting her results to the Run SMART team, Sumner said, “just want to tell you one more time how happy I am with this training plan. In addition to running faster than I ever have, I think this is also the longest period of injury-free running I’ve ever had.”
