New York City Marathon 2018
4 November 2018
Adriano joined Cougars in March this year with his previous personal best (PB) for half marathon, 21.1km (1:56hrs). After joining Cougars for specific training, he achieved his PB for 21.1km at the SAFRA Army Half Marathon 2018 (1:42hrs).
Over Cougars' 7 months of progressive training, he ran his first ever marathon in the New York City Marathon 2018 and achieved his personal best of below 4 hours! During the marathon, he hit 1:53hrs at the 21.1km mark (which is still faster than his original PB for 21.1km). It is a great timing for him despite the hilly course, especially in the last mile.
What a great improvement and achievement on a hilly course. Cougars are proud of him and heartiest congratulations! Keep on running as a Cougar.... Growllllllllll!
