Coming off her win at the NYRR Staten Island Half Marathon in October, Cathrine Wolden set her fourth straight marathon PR as a Run SMART client at the Cal International Marathon this past weekend. Her official time was 2:51:33 (6:33 per mile), four minutes faster than her last marathon and 22 minutes faster than her PR when she started working with Run SMART coach Alicia Shay.
Even more impressive was the way Cathrine executed her race plan. At the halfway mark her split was 1:26:08 so she came home in 1:25:25 for the second half which is only 21 seconds slower than her half marathon PR! Brilliant! Next stop, sub-2:50.
