Jeffrey “J-Train” Dweck began training with us in 2011 in advance of his first marathon. Except for when he occasionally finds his way to the starting line of a race during a prescribed easy run, Jeff has been a pleasure to work with. He’s a regular at the Red Hook track and our Thursday night road workouts. He’s setting PR’s at a rapid-fire rate, and shows no sign of slowing down.
Weapons of Choice: Mizuno Wave Enigmas (for now), Garmin FR 210, Clif Gel – Vanilla!, Young Blood by The Naked and Famous and CCMS positive energy. Fuel: Liking Risebars, Coconut Water, Honey (on everything) and some good ‘ol Ez. 4:9 bread.
Best Races: Has to be my 25:09 4-miler which Coach Cane ordered and we deliva’d! To the second! Or my first sub-1:30:00 Half. Went in uncertain, but did it strong, right in NYC.

Anything else you’d like to share?: Have fun. Don’t be shy.
