Lillian Park just picked up a big confidence boost while she prepares for the Cal International Marathon in December. This past weekend she set a new personal best at the Wineglass Half Marathon and achieved a goal she’s been shooting for the past two years. Not only was Lillian all smiles after the race her coach, Leah Rosenfeld, was stoked too, “Lillian just ran a 3-minute PR in the half marathon! Her PR when she started with me 5-months ago was 1:46:36 and her short-term goal was to break 1:45:xx… today she ran 1:43:31!!!!”
Run SMART Coach Leah Rosenfeld had a successful trip to NYC this week. She took home the win in the Tracktown Summer Series Community 5k then got to meet her client Lillian in-person for the first time! As online coaches we get to work with clients all over the world but unfortunately we never get to meet most. Glad to see some coach and athlete selfie action at Icahn Stadium after the race.
Leah finished 1st female and 19th place overall in 17:08 (5:32 per mile). Full Results.
Sara Hofeldt of Suwanee, GA set a 29-second PR at the Chattahoochee 10k this past weekend. She was first masters and 3rd overall female finisher. Her official time was 42:28. [Results]
Sara started working with Run SMART coach Leah Rosenfeld just over two months ago and she’s already making great progress…
“I absolutely love training with Leah! She has really taken the time to get to know me and is extremely motivating, insightful, accessible, friendly, and down to earth. She gets me. Leah is an excellent coach, and I have complete confidence in her ability to bring out my absolute best. I am so excited to see what I can achieve under her expert guidance!” – Sara
We’re super excited to announce Leah Rosenfeld (pictured with Run SMART Head Coach Dr. Jack Daniels) as our latest private coach to join the staff. Leah will focus her attention on athletes looking to improve their track, cross country and road PRs from 5k up to the half marathon.
“I am so grateful to have the opportunity to join The Run SMART Project’s all-star coaching staff. As a current athlete working with Run SMART, I have seen significant improvements in my own performances through this training system and as a coach, I am excited to be able to share my knowledge of running, strength training and nutrition with runners as they pursue their goals.” – Leah
