Boston Marathon Update

After about 30K, five Run SMART clients are on pace to set new personal bests.

Cathrine Wolden has been getting stronger throughout the race, averaging 7:00 pace per mile and now about 6:55 pace through 30k. Boston is known to slow you down on the hills late in the race so this is an incredible development. Cathrine’s previous PR is 3:13 so she’s looking at possibly a 12 minute improvement! Fingers crossed.

Run SMART Really Rocks P.F. Chang’s

Run SMART Rocks P.F. Chang’s Part I featured Vince Sherry’s clients. Part II focuses on Mike Smith and the success of his clients…

John Robinson of Savannah, GA competed in the full marathon at PF Chang’s Rock n Roll Marathon and set a 38 minute PR, running 3:33:09. Robinson’s half marathon split of 1:38 en route was also a half marathon PR! Robinson has been working with Run SMART coach Mike Smith for nine months and set PRs in the 10k, half marathon, and marathon in that time.

Run SMART Results – Philly Distance Run

The Run SMART Project had a solid showing by several athletes at the Philly Distance Run on Sunday, September 21. Bob Lenehan, Erin Stout, and Avi Kravitz traveled out to Philly together with a common goal of setting new personal bests. With Erin and Avi crushing their previous PRs, and Bob having a very respectable day after over a year away from racing, all three went home satisfied with their efforts.
