“I Have Never Felt So Strong In A Marathon Before”

Jack Daniels Training Plan customer Kristin Garcia set a new PR at Grandma’s Marathon this past weekend and finished just 12 seconds shy of cracking the 3-hour barrier! Her official time was 3:00:11, which was over an 11-minute PR. [Official results]

Even better was how she paced herself throughout. Below she was kind enough to let us share her feedback from the race:

I was able to even split the race with my half being 1:29:45. I passed about 45 people from mile 19 to the finish. I have never felt so strong in a marathon before, it was an awesome race for me! Thank you so much for all of your help!

“Wanted to let you know how well the plan is working!”

More positive feedback. This from Danielle Duhon

I am following my Jack Daniels Training Plan to the second to train for Grandma’s Marathon June 16 (goal 3:35). I ran Dallas Rock & Roll Half yesterday in warm weather and had a 2 minute PR running 1:38:57 (the plan predicted a 1:39:45 by week 9). Of course I’m ecstatic and wanted to let you know how well the plan is working!
