He’s not letting a lack of sponsorship affect him.
Nevermind Ryan Hall and Meb Keflezighi. The past two years, Jason Hartmann has been the top American male finisher at the Boston Marathon with two fourth-place results.
Run.com has a nice interview with the Boulder, Colo. resident, who is making his final tweaks for the upcoming ING New York City Marathon next weekend.
“So far, I can’t complain,” Hartmann says of his preparation. “The goal has always been to be as best prepared as I can. I’m confident in my preparation. [The race is] the final exam. The thing with the marathon is you never know. There’s a lot that could go wrong in an event that goes over 2 hours. There’s an element of unknowing, but I’ve trained really hard, so I’m confident in my fitness.”
Hartmann says he’s not going for a specific pace or time in New York City and just wants to finish as high on the podium as possible.
