Best Training Plan Online

We’re proud to make Outside Magazine’s shortlist for “The Best Running Training Plans” online. Even better, we’re the only custom option in the bunch!

There’s a lot of nonsense floating around the internet, and navigating the tides of misinformation poses a continuous challenge. When seeking online guidance for how to prepare for a running race, a poor choice can leave you injured, overtrained, and in the unenviable position of having wasted weeks of your life on bogus advice.

New PRs At The Boston Marathon

We’re just starting to get results from some of our first customers who purchased the brand new Run SMART Training Plans service. Kim Bogin and Jorge Ospina both reported setting PRs at the Boston Marathon after following their personalized 18-week plans.

Jorge broke 3-hours for the first time finishing in 2:53:27, an 8-minute PR! His previous PR of 3:01 was set back in 2009 and his last marathon finish was 3:13:22. We’re thrilled we could help him make such a huge improvement from his last race.

Kim Bogin ran 3:36, a three minute PR. Afterwards Kim said, “It is the best I’ve ever felt during a marathon. The sufferfest didn’t start until mile 23 but until then I felt great. It was awesome!”
