1:59:46 at the Country Music Half Marathon!!! Not only a PR for me but I also made the sub 2 hour goal! My previous PR was this past November and it was 2:07 on 13.1 Ft. Lauderdale. So, I knocked 7 minutes off my time. None of this would have been possible without your guidance. You gave me a plan that was challenging but so productive in making me a better run. I am truly grateful for you for that. I know I had to do the work but without you, I would have not known which direction to go in. I have already recommended you to several of my friends. Thank you so much, Sonja. Your positive, encouraging emails always were so helpful and I find you to be a very motivating coach.I will not hesitate at all to have you coach me again. You rock!
Sonja–I had a GREAT run!!! Finished in 2:57:09!!! I really thought my “reach” goal of 3:00:00 was so far fetched that I didn’t even tell anyone… And I even beat that!! Thank you so much for helping me EXCEED my expectations!! You’re the BEST!!! 😀
Well I did it thanks to you 3:08:50 KC Marathon. 5th overall female and 1st in my age group. Thank you for coaching me. I hope that you will continue to coach me. I am very excited very pleased that I am not that sore and extremely excited about the PR you are the best. Thank you again and I will be in touch!!!
Hi Sonja. I am VERY happy and excited about my time! Based on the calculations I DID break 2:00:00 for the HM. My time for the 13.1 should have been 1:59:25 w/ a pace of 9:07!!!! YAY- I am so happy! I felt I had run so much harder and was better prepared than at the Country Music marathon. The schedule you gave me keeps pushing me harder and harder ….but I know that’s what I have to do to get faster! Thanks so much for your help! I couldn’t have done it without you! I’m sure all of the 5K speed work this summer was a huge boost to my speed. I am amazed that I really did a HM in under 2 hrs!!
I tell you so often I am afraid you will think I’m weird, but you are a beautiful person and have made my marathon training more productive and enjoyable. I am proud to have you as my Coach! You have touched my life in a special way that will not be forgotten. It is not just your amazing running ability, but more importantly, I appreciate you being trustworthy and honest. It creates a very secure environment for those around you.
