My Brilliant Coaching Technique
It's been a while since we had a "Dear Coach" entry. I chose to take advantage to the fact the NSQ and Jeff Dweck constantly push and motivate each other at the Thursday night workouts. Jeff has bested her 5k PR, but she just beat his HM PR.

Jeff's time at today's Celebrate Israel 4-miler? You guessed it. 25:09. I only wish that Jeff could run the Women's Mini 10k next week.
