Bawcom, who trains in Flagstaff, AZ and is coached by our very own Dr. Jack Daniels, smacked her previous record by 1 minute and 16 seconds.

After the race she commented, “Nothing more satisfying than going out and running exactly the race that your training said you could!” Man, we love that quote!

Erin Miller of Columbia, SC, recently won the Newberry Half Marathon in 1:23:44. [Full results] Not only was she first female overall, she finished 3rd place overall in the race!

This was a 2.5 minute personal best for Erin and her second PR while following her Jack Daniels’ Boston Marathon custom training plan. Last month she also PR’d by 10 seconds in a local 5k.

On to Boston!


Josh Weinrobe Sets PR At Georgia Half Marathon

On a very hilly course at the Georgia Half Marathon Josh Weinrobe still managed to PR by over a minute. He finished in 1:26:27 (6:34 per mile).

This is a great sign as he enters his final weeks of preparation for the Boston Marathon. Josh is going after another sub-3 hour performance and his 4th Run SMART marathon PR.

Run SMART client James McKirdy couldn’t be stopped at the NYC Half. Ever since he team up with his coach Alvina Begay he’s been on a tear.

Recently, coming off of being sick and on a cold and windy day in Manhattan he still managed to set a new PR by 2.5 minutes! He finished in 1:12:37, good for 63rd male overall. [Full results]

We’re happy to report two new PRs from the Rock ‘n’ USA Half Marathon.

Stephen England, who’s following a custom plan from Jack finished 33rd out of over 16,000 runners in 1:18:21. [Full Results] A great sign and even more impressive that he trained through this race in the middle of his preparation for Boston next month.

Amanda Hamilton, a client of Run SMART coach Ann Alyanak, set a PR by 3.5 minutes. Her official time was 1:50:38. [Full results] Another great sign considering Ann just reported that Amanda only ran hard the second half of the race. This was just a tune-up for Cherry Blossom next week!


Running Under Influence In Tel Aviv

Jack Daniels’ Training Plan Customer Jens Kutscher dropped about 40 seconds off his personal best at the Nike Night Run 10k in Tel Aviv last week. He finished in 41:08.

Congrats, Jens! We’re looking forward getting him closer to 40:00 as he prepares for his next goal 10k this summer.


It’s All About The Pacing

Thomas Frame of Dallas, TX just started working with Run SMART coach Alicia Shay. After a few quick pointers over the phone regarding pacing he set a new PR in the 5k. Roughly a week later he followed her advice again and dropped another 40 seconds finishing the Form Follows Fitness 5k in 17:50!

Thomas was 2nd Masters runner and 7th place overall [Full results]. We’re excited to see how fast he can get with a little more time working with his new coach!


Nina Zarina Cracks 3-Hr Barrier

Nina Zarina of Moscow, Russia broke 3-hours for the first time at the Tokyo Marathon this past weekend. Nina’s coach Dr. Jack Daniels informed us that this was a 7-minute PR [Result]. We’re excited for Nina who set a goal of sub-3 when she signed up for coaching this past fall.

Congrats to Jack and Nina!


“Time To Empty The Tank”

Marylee Martucci and her coach Alicia Shay have gotten off to a great start! In just shy of three months Marylee has set three PRs. She snagged a PR at a half in December, the Dubai Marathon three weeks ago and then another Half PR at the RAK last weekend in UAE. Not ideal to race another half marathon just three weeks after her marathon, of course, but there’s only a small window of opportunity for racing around Dubai. If you’re feeling good you’ve got to maximize your opportunities.

Alicia: The thing that I like the most about working with her is that she absolutely love, loves, loves running and is willing to do things that most athletes (even professional runners) won’t take the time to do. She is definitely one dedicated chica.  (more…)
