“His Program Was Challenging Yet Very Thoughtful”

Congrats to Mieko on reaching her goal of sub-4 at the Chicago Marathon last weekend. Mieko’s official time was 3:54:13, a 10-minute improvement from her previous best.

Kind words for her coach Mr. Gary Berard:

Gary prepared me so well for this race – his program was challenging yet very thoughtful.  No flare-ups/physical issues while training/racing either. As a result, I was able to truly enjoy the entire 26.2 miles last Sunday 🙂
