Marathon Nation Benefits

So 3 weeks ago I ran a 5K in 24:54……today I ran one in 24:11……43 seconds faster!!! My splits weren’t the best but I felt so much stronger during the last mile compared to 3 weeks ago! I am just finishing week 5 of the “Get Fast” program, can’t wait to see how I race in 3 weeks when I’m done with this program!!!” — Lindsay Van Sickle

“I am sooo pumped to report yesterdays accomplishment. All the stars lined up for me and I ran the race of my short running life. 2012 BQ time for me is 3:45. I aimed for 3:40 and was able to run 3:39:10. I ran with the 3:45 pace team (who was running even splits) for the first 5 Mi in order to have some help in keeping my enthusiasm in check. They were running just about the right pace. At Mi 5 I left them to follow my MN plan.  

At 1/2 point I felt like I had just been for a jog in the park and at Mi 20 no crash. Felt tired but still strong. In the last few miles I could tell I had something left and picked up the pace. Was able to finish almost a minute under my goal. I give the credit to the MN pacing plan. That and the training of course.

I even sprinted the last half block against a much younger relay runner…and crossed the finish nose and nose with him. What a great day and what a difference from my previous three marathons. Thanks again coach P and MN. Going to BOSTON! WaHoo!” — Barton Leavitt

“Training and execution methods promoted by Marathon Nation helped me post a 9 minute PR on a tough Boston course. Marathon Nation methods let me start the race seeded 12079, but finish 3901. That’s fully 2/3 the field that qualified faster than me that I beat by training and racing smart.“”No coach or training method can do the work for you, but I’m convinced that this philosophy allowed me to get the most of out of the work I put in.” — William Jenks
