Jack Daniels Training Plan customer Josh Weinrobe cracked the 3-hour barrier for the first time at the Soldier Marathon in Columbus, GA last weekend. The 42-year old from Atlanta had an amazing day. He set a new PR, hit his goal time on the dot and finished 9th overall in 2:59:42. [Full results]
What’s really amazing is the fact that Josh has now hit his goal time on the dot three marathons in a row while following one of Jack’s customized training plans. He bought his first plan last year for Chicago. His PR was 3:28 when he signed up and he customized his plan to run 3:13. He ran 3:13. Then, this past spring he trained for Eugene and customized a new plan to run 3:01. You guessed it, he ran 3:01. And now, for the third time in a row he hit his goal time (2:59) on the dot!
Josh sent us some feedback after the race, “It’s hard to believe I finished my first marathon just over two years ago in 3:41, qualified for 2013 Boston Marathon in April, and have now gone sub-three hours. I can say unequivocally that there’s no way I would have achieved this without your training guidance. Looking forward to my next SMART plan for Boston (once I take a much needed rest!).”
