Last time Josh Weinrobe signed up for a Jack Daniels Training Plan he hit his goal time by the second finishing last year’s Chicago Marathon in 3:13:00 – a 15-minute PR! Convinced we were some kind of geniuses he signed up for another plan geared towards the Eugene Marathon this past April with a goal time of 3:05. We thought he could run a bit faster so we geared the schedule’s paces and workouts towards a prescribed time of 3:01. Can you guess what happened?
Run SMART client Michelle LaSala set a personal best at the Eugene Half Marathon in Eugene, OR. LaSala was 23rd female out of 2,573 in 1:29:13, a PR by one minute and 15 seconds! (Full Results)
Michelle has been working with Run SMART coach Vince Sherry since 2007. In the last 14 months she has run 1:39, 1:35, 1:30 and now 1:29 for the half marathon.
It’s not everyday you can say one of your clients improved their marathon time by 25 minutes in one race. This past weekend in the Eugene Marathon Jen Johnston reached her longtime goal by qualifying for the Boston Marathon. Not only did she reach her goal, she dropped her marathon time by 25 minutes in the process, finishing in 3:37:46 (8:19 per mile). Full results can be found here.
Big congrats to Jen and her Run SMART coach Blake Boldon for this incredible effort.
