20x30-OTXX2897Ray Venables set a new PR and got his BQ at the Ottawa Marathon. His official time was 3:02:52. [Full results]

Afterwards, Ray kindly thanked us for the training…

I’m writing you to THANK YOU as best as I can in an email. I did it with you and the Run SMART project team’s help: I qualified for the Boston Marathon (unofficially)!

On Sunday, May 24 I finished the Ottawa Marathon in 3:02:52! That’s a both a PR and a BQ! I’m stunned at the results that I attribute to a sound training program. After following the Jack Daniels’ program for the first time, I feel like I now know how to train for a marathon properly!
