Got Grit?

We love this picture! With a beautiful backdrop, Andy McGhee of the UK, is literally kicking it in the final stretch of his first marathon to reach his goal of sub-3-hours. His official time was 2:59:54. [Full results]

I would like to personally thank you for writing my program for the Bournemouth Marathon. I achieved a 2hr 59min in my first marathon and I’ve qualified for Boston which is a dream. I hope now is that I’m lucky enough to get a place for the 2018 race.

This has been my second training plan now and it’s been incredible. In 10 months I’ve run a sub-1:30 half marathon and now sub-3 for a full. This having only started running one year prior. I can’t wait to start my next plan! – Andy

Andy McGhee Rocks The Sandals In Route To 14-Minute PR

Andy McGhee of Southampton, England is about halfway through his 12-week custom training plan from Dr. Jack Daniels and he’s already seeing some big fitness changes.

I was not supposed run any events until the Southampton Half Marathon where I was aiming for a PB around the 1:31 mark, however I got roped into a half marathon this weekend and I smashed my previous PB (1:42:24) in a time of 1:28:14.

This same event last year was the first time I competed barefoot style. Last year I ran 1:55:30. This year I maintained a 6:44/mile average so I’m very happy with the progress.
