After 31 years last Monday, an American Meb Keflezighi was the FIRST to crack the tape after 26.2 fierce miles from Hopkington to Boston.
And what did it take for an American to end our country’s marathon winning drought? Nothing other than the perfect race. At 38, Meb ran a personal best race (2:08:37) AND a perfectly paced one — 1:04:25 first half, 1:04:16 2nd half for a negative split. Here at TRE we know how hard runners work during those last few miles. It seems that any and every obstacle conspires to try and slow you down. But not if you run tall, lead with your hips, and maintain that “sweet spot” of just enough running rotation. In other words, you focus, work hard, and #runstrong!
If this year’s Boston Marathon inspired and reinvigorated your running as much as it did us, you should check out The Run Experience and our latest video on Running Rotation and Flow. Watch, try the drills, and share with your friends. Who knows, maybe this year we can all tap into our own sweet spots and find our inner MEB! TRE Team, Jason, Craig & Nate
