“Now I See The ‘Madness’ In The Method”

Jack Daniels’ Training Plan customer Bradley Baker set a new PR at the Fool’s Dual Half Marathon in Cape Ann, MA. Baker started the plan with a 2:07 PR set back in 2012 and set out to break 2 hours after turning 60 during his training. On a very difficult and hilly course he still managed to PR and crack the 2-hr barrier with a time of 1:59:37. [Full results] He was 5th overall in his age group.

After the race Baker commented, “I felt really strong the whole way and felt like I was not just running up the hills but attacking them. I had gas in the tank at the end as the last 1 1/2 mile I was almost sprinting. Now I see the ‘madness’ in the method.”
