Amy Gordon Unfazed By Wind In New York

Congrats to our good friend/client Amy Gordon of New York, NY for finishing 77th female overall this past weekend at the NYC Marathon. Amy ran a new personal best of 3:07:47 on a not so fast course on a not so fast windy day. [Results] This was over 9 minutes faster than her previous best set almost three years ago.

Amy works with Run SMART hunk Vince Sherry.

Amy Gordon Ready To Roll At Boston Marathon

Run SMART client Amy Gordon set a new half marathon PR under very difficult conditions. With wind gusts up to 20 and 30 mph Amy still managed to drop 1 minute and 20 seconds off of her personal best. Her official time was 1:33:40 (7:08 per mile). To put this performance into perspective, Amy averaged 7:16 per mile at the NYRR Gridiron Classic 4M in early February.

This is a great sign for Amy and her coach Vince Sherry with roughly one month to go until Amy’s goal race, The Boston Marathon.
