I am happy to announce that thanks to the RUN S.M.A.R.T. training plan (and my hard work o of course ) I have my new personal record in the half marathon!!!.
I finished the last race in 1:47:27 which is 10 minutes better than in March this year. Thanks a lot for your help to achieve this result.
Now I have decided to run my first marathon in April 2015 and I will follow of course your customized plan :).
This past weekend we had two Run SMART high school clients take home state titles. Yesterday we posted about Annie Hill winning her class title in Montana.

Ty worked closely with Run SMART coach Rod Koborsi on his training last spring and over the summer. He’s only a junior so we’re excited to see his progress over the next year and a half.
Annie Hill, freshman from Glacier, Montana is now ranked fourth in the high school girls XC national rankings. Annie worked with Run SMART coach Malindi Elmore over the summer and has had a breakout season winning the Montana state AA title this past weekend in 17:11.

Wham! He follows up post-Steamtown with some great news…

Well, five, if you consider that he beat his 10k PR twice in route! Oscar Gomez has been training in our NYC Marathon Training Program with the NY Flyers. This will be his third marathon program with Run SMART and each season he just keeps getting faster.
This past weekend at the Staten Island Half Marathon he improved his PR by 4:15 finishing in 1:40:04 [Results] Along the way he also managed to set new PRs for 5 miles, 10k and 10 miles!
After the race, he sent us a note, “It is so rewarding to see this much progress only 7 months after the NYC half, where i set my previous PR. It is also incredibly encouraging to see all our work paying off (BIG) just weeks before marathon day. I hope today’s race is a sign of things to come for all of us. I am also grateful for the program, for our most excellent coach, and for my running mates that so often pull me through the hard work.”
