50k+ (Moab Red Hot, 9hrs and some change -- yeah, I'm planning to train for this same ultra next year).
Short-Term Running Goals:
This season, I hope to break a 20-minute 5K. I also hope to get a 1:30 half-marathon and a 3:20 marathon. I'm hoping this is a successful season. I train with a great team of running buddies. Check out their blogs spots below.
Long-Term Running Goals:
I would like to qualify again for Boston and actually run it this time. Craig, I'm counting on you to help me do that this year. I've succeeded in encouraging my husband to run a full marathon with me -- now we just have to decide which one. We both put in for St. George '08 and neither of us drew out. Too bad!
I am married to the greatest guy (Johnny). No kids for us yet. Within the last year, Johnny has taken up an interest in running. He runs with the whole team now. We enjoy running together, with our golden retriever Murphy, and with our awesome team of the coolest running people out there.
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.
