Romanian Runner Coached by Hideshi is Hoping for a Good Day at Osaka Ladys Marathon Jan 27th

Posted on 01/18/2013

Hideshi's Running Forms class meets regularly on  Saturdays at 8:00 at at Community Park in Davis, but next week  Saturday he'll be out of town. Where? He'll be in Osaka, Japan coaching his Romanian athlete, Mihaela Botezon on as she runs the Osaka International Women's Marathon on January 27th, 2013.

Hideshi coached Mihaela to a PR of 2:25:00 in the London Marathon in 2005 but Miheala has been off for several years after she had a baby in 2008. She returned to competition in 2011 and is looking forward to running a good race; hopefully somewhere under 2:32. The goal by summer is 2:28.
Currently her 3.1 mile training run time is 17:15
Her half marathon pace is 1:12:00.

Will she hit her mark on the 27th?

Stay tuned and see!
