Running Accomplishments:

2nd Year of XC (Senior Year). My best races thus far have come from Nike Regionals down in Pheonix (5K), the Dixie Invitational (800), and the Davis Invitational (1600). I took 8th place in the 1600 and 11th in the 800 at 3A State. Also at state we were in the slower heat of the Sprint Medley and ended up taking 3rd overall, that was pretty legit.

Junior Year:

Best 5K: 16:28

Best 800: 1:59

Best 1600: 4:24

Short-Term Running Goals:

TRACK GOALS FOR 2014:

Sub 4:20 in the 1600

4:15 in the 1600

Sub 9:50 in the 3200

9:30 in the 3200

PR in the 800

1:54 in 800

Long-Term Running Goals:

After high school and my mission I think that it would be really cool to get into the St. George Marathon. That is one thing I would like to accomplish in my lifetime. Hopefully I will be able to do multiple. In all I would just like to enjoy the time I run and have some fun experiences with it.

Russian champion tries Crocs, commits to racing a marathon in them

Nikolay Chavkin in the video below did 3x1000, first two in Adidas carbon-fiber models, the last one in Crocs. Surprised by the result (2:52, 2:52, 2:50) with the fastest interval done in Crocs, he committed to racing a marathon in Crocs if the video gets 42K likes and 195 comments (for 42 km 195 m, the marathon distance). Nikolay's current marathon PR is 2:14:00. The video was created by a Russian sporting goods store chain. Their moto is "more sports - brighter life", which we think is wonderful, and also deserves a Like. If you want to see a fast marathon in Crocs, go to the video and click the Like button. And make sure to share it with your friends.

Let the winter training begin. It's time to start fresh and begin blogging again. I'm all in for this track season. The way I see it you are either all in or you aren't in at all. 4 miles easy with Krenny, Stoner, Kaylee and Mia. So good to be running again although my form is trying to be figured out and possibly made a little better while it's still a little goofy from not running. Legs felt good and I'm ready for whatever lies ahead.

An awesome run today. I ran a little more than 4 but we'll just call it 4. Got some new shoes and I was feeling so fast, best run in a long time. Hope everyone's Christmas has been Merry and Bright!

Great run this morning, a little colder but it felt good. Ran with the usual crew of guys and added Caden and Scott. Fun run, good to have Byron back running. 4 miles easy.

Decided to go out and give running a go today after I got my wisdom teeth removed on Friday. First mile I struggled with a lot of junk in my throught but after that I felt good. It was pretty refreshing this morning. Went out for 7 miles easy on some trails with Krenny and Byron. Good last run of 2013.
