Run SMART client Rowan Jones, of Waverly, KY, ran 2:58:25 last month at the Rocket City Marathon in Huntsville, AL. He was 28th place overall [Full results].

Coming into the race Rowan and his coach Rod Koborsi were shooting for anything under 3:10 to get a BQ. As his training progressed they knew sub-3 was within reach. Sure enough, they were right… he got his BQ easily along with his first sub-3 performance ever.

This continues quite the trend for Rowan…check out his improvement over his last three marathons:

  • 3:46:12 5/6/2012 (not coached, run/walk method used)
  • 3:12:22 1/12/2013 (Daniels’ custom plan)
  • 2:58:25 12/14/2013 (Daniels’ custom plan with private coaching from Rod)
