Jason Klaitman just reported to us that he set a new PR at the Tobacco Road Marathon after following his very own Jack Daniels Training Plan.
I had what I feel was a very good race. I wanted to run a 2:59, but it was hotter and more humid that I would have liked and I fought off cramping in the second half of the marathon – something I have never dealt with before. I ended up running a 3:03:15. My previous PR was 3:11:07, so a big improvement and good enough for 3rd in my AG and top-30 OA. I think on a flatter course like Chicago, I could have easily broken three hours, but regardless, I re-qualified for Boston.
I really appreciated your plan: I ran more miles on back to back days then I have ever run but stayed healthier than I ever have during a marathon training cycle.
Congrats, Jason! Next stop, sub-3!!
