Longtime Run SMART Project customer Rusty Smith had another great outcome. This time he took advantage of great weather in NYC.
I used your plan (with my coach John Carstens) to train for a 3:20 NYC Marathon time but I ended up running a 3:09!! That’s a PR for me by 2 minutes! I thought my PR days were over! I can’t tell you how shocked and elated I am with the results. It was the greatest race of my life. Honestly, it felt like flying throughout most of the race. My plan was to run by feel and put some time in the bank, and then slow down when I felt fatigued. But I didn’t feel that way until mile 21-22… and then I was too close to a PR to give up! It was simply a magical race.
Thank you, Thank you, Thank you for the work you’re doing and the excellent training plans you provide.
