James McKirdy Sets Four PRs At Broad Street Run

Run SMART client James McKirdy has been on fire ever since he signed up for coaching with Alvina Begay. Last year he wrote about how his abilities have skyrocketed after hiring his new coach. Since he’s broken 2:40 for the marathon and set a new half marathon PR.

Recently, coming into his next big goal race, the Broad St 10-miler, James set his sights on a top 50 finish amongst the 40,000 plus who toed the line. And apparently, he was sick of just setting one PR in a race. Along the the flat and fast course in Philly, James set PRs for 3 miles (15:25), boom, 5 miles (26:07), boom, 8 miles (42:45), boom, and then for 10 miles (53:55)! And he reached his place goal finishing 33rd overall. [Full Results]
