Run SMART client John Robinson of Savannah, GA set a new PR at the inaugural Rock N Roll Savannah Half Marathon on November 5th, running 1:28:49 good for 79th place out of over 14,000 racers. Robinson came to The Run SMART Project in spring of 2009 with a 1:44 half marathon PR. Last weekend was his 10th PR performance in that time, having set personal bests in every race distance from 5k to the marathon.
“I knew breaking 1:30 was the next goal with the half but I couldn’t tell if it would be this race or his next attempt in January. He nailed it and we both couldn’t be happier,” said coach Mike Smith.
