Rob DeLong Sets New 15k PR

Run SMART client Rob DeLong has now been officially running road races for over a year. The 35-year-old from New York City ran the same race twice for the first time at the NYRR Ted Corbitt Classic 15k in Central Park this weekend. Last year he ran 1:30:27 (9:42 per mile) and we’re excited to post that he ran 1:13:52 (7:55 per mile) this year with his fastest mile coming at the end – 7:20! [Full results]

“Rob has gotten here through slow and steady progress, he never misses a day of training” said Run SMART coach Brian Rosetti. “Besides the 5th Ave Mile he had only averaged sub-8 in a 5k and 4 mile. This is hugely significant and he’s just in week 2 of his Boston Marathon preparation so I expect to see him get a lot faster soon.”

KC Cohen Breaks Personal Best From 2005

Run SMART client KC Cohen set a new 15k PR this past weekend at the New York Road Runner’s Ted Corbitt 15k in Central Park. KC finished in 1:08:12 (7:20 per mile), 31 seconds faster than her previous best for this distance set back in 2005! [Full Results]

“KC is just getting back to normal training after a little post-Chicago Marathon break.,” said her coach Brian Rosetti. “This was a nice bonus considering we were only looking for a long steady effort to prepare for the Manhattan Half next month. She stuck right to the game plan going out in 7:28 bringing her splits down the whole way with a solid last mile of 7:06!”
