Bawcom, who trains in Flagstaff, AZ and is coached by our very own Dr. Jack Daniels, smacked her previous record by 1 minute and 16 seconds.

After the race she commented, “Nothing more satisfying than going out and running exactly the race that your training said you could!” Man, we love that quote!

Erin Strout PR’s At Cherry Blossom 10 Miler

Run SMART client Erin Strout PR’d this weekend at the Credit Union Cherry Blossom 10 Mile Run in Washington, DC. Strout ran 1:12:40 (7:16 pace) to edge out her previous PR of 1:12:58 from the same race in 2009.

Coach Mike Smith said, “Erin’s race was her first in six months. This past October she PR’d at the Chicago Marathon but then fought a nagging injury over the winter. We had been back to regular running for a few weeks but have only done two workouts, so really weren’t targeting a fast time this weekend. For her to run as fast as she did should be a huge confidence boost for her. She has great things in front of her in 2011.”
