Matt Dawson, 30, Central Coast Half Marathon, 29 November 2015, 1:20.45 (10th overall) inaugural half.
This was Matt’s first half marathon. He recently started training with Sweat with a goal of qualifying for the 2016 New York Marathon. Matt chose to run the Central Coast Half because in order to qualify for New York, he had to run a sub 1.21 half before the end of 2015. Beating this target time by just 15 seconds, Matt was ecstatic. He continues to train hard with the Sweat squad in preparation for his first marathon in November 2016.
