Gundula Brattke Sets Three New PRs

Run SMART client Gundula Brattke attended the 2010 Run SMART Retreat and then decided to sign up for private coaching. Her main goal when she signed up was to improve so she could enjoy her runs more. After major knee surgery five years ago she finished her first half marathon this past May. Since joining The Run SMART Project and working with coach Alicia Shay she has dropped over 25 minutes off her half marathon best and set new PRs for 5 miles and 10k!
