Benton Wong of San Ramon, CA set a big PR at Mountains 2 Beach. His official time was 3:02:53. [Full Results]
I just completed the Mountains 2 Beach Marathon this past Sunday and I accomplished my goal of getting a BQ by more than 10 minutes below the cutoff, and a PR by 16.5 minutes.
The customized 18 week plan that was created for me worked great. At times, the workouts appeared intimidating but I sucked it up, did them, and got me in the shape I needed to hold on and be in control for that distance.
