Run SMART client Steve Rossler qualified for the Boston Marathon last week in Grand Rapids. The 53-year-old from Newton, IA finished 29th out of 102 in his age group in 3:38:10. [Full results] He’s now only 30 seconds away from his marathon lifetime best from 2009. Hey, 50 is the new 40!
Steve’s pacing was really strong throughout in true Jack Daniels’ fashion. His pace per mile for the first half was 8:19, just one second faster per mile than his overall pace.
