  • At 15k she was averaging 8:22 per mile
  • At 35k she was averaging 8:18 per mile
  • And she finished averaging 8:16 per mile!!!

The picture says it all – she literally breezed through that race. Magic works with Run SMART Coach Vince Sherry.

Magic Orgil Wins Gobi Desert Half Marathon

Run SMART client Magic Orgil just got back from Mongolia where she¬†was first female and fourth finisher overall in the Gobi Desert Half Marathon. She finished in a very impressive time of 1:51 on a challenging and sandy course as you can imagine. The course cuts through sand dunes, the wide open Mongolian Gobi Desert¬†steppes and the famous excavation dinosaur area next to the “Flaming Cliffs”. Sounds like a lot of fun. Congrats, Magic!
