Joe Swift of Fairfield, CT turns 40 in a few months but he’s refusing to accept the idea that you need to create new “Masters PRs” due to the impending slowdown as his body ages. This winter we customized a 15-week training plan to help him run as fast as possible and he refused to miss a beat, even doing Threshold miles by himself at 5 a.m. in the dark before work!
This morning Heidi Peoples took home the women’s title at the 1st Inaugural Scranton Half Marathon. She finished in 1:17:29 (5:54 per mile). [Full results] This amazing performance comes just 8 weeks after Heidi gave birth to her third child! Say what?!?! It’s also her first race in 14 months…just sayin.
On April 6th, the 1st Inaugural Scranton Half Marathon will take place and it looks like they’re quickly approaching their race cap of 2500 runners. It’s a great course that tours the old scrappy mining town and finishes along the scenic Lackawanna River Heritage Trail. As the race says, “we’re going over the river and through the woods, literally,” and we’re excited to have the responsibility of getting runners there with our new training partnership agreement.
All participants can now customize a 12-week training plan designed by legendary coach Dr. Jack Daniels on our new VDOT O2 training app. 10% of each plan sold will be donated to future development and expansion of the river trail which is transforming Northeastern PA and helping to promote a more active/outdoors lifestyle.
