Terry Ballou Whoops It Up At Penn Relays

Terry Ballou, fresh off her world record breaking performance in the Masters 4×800, took her speed to the Penn Relays with the Millrose Track Club. Watch Terry fly by the competition into the lead on the second leg of this 4×400 relay. She reportedly got a few customary Penn Relays “whoops” as she flew by on the back stretch, splitting 60.5!

Terry works with Run SMART coach Dan Wilson.

Run SMART Client Sets World Record

We got into the private coaching business with the goal of helping runners of all abilities reach their personal running goals, whether it’s running injury-free, finishing a half-marathon or qualifying for the Boston Marathon, etc. As our business grew we expanded to working with some competitive and local elite runners. But never did we expect to EVER make an announcement one day that a Run SMART client has set a world record. Today, we’re proud to announce that Terry Ballou was part of a world record setting 4×800 relay team at the U.S. Masters Indoor Track & Field Championships.

Terry Ballou Wins Valentine Invite 800M

Run SMART client Terry Ballou, at 42 years old, has set her second post-collegiate PR in the last month by winning the 800M at the Valentine Invite at Seton Hall University. She finished 17 seconds ahead of the next female competitor and a little less than one second behind the first male finisher. Her time, 2:21.18, was three seconds faster than her previous post-collegiate PR (and on an old-school indoor track (flat), kiddies).

Earlier this month we noted Terry’s 1500 win at the Colgate Games and her post-collegiate PR in the 400 at the Millrose Games. She’ll be going after sub-4:55 in the 1500 at U.S. Masters Nationals in March.

Terry is coached by Dan Wilson.
