Goal Type:



Attended Japanese high school and finished in March 2020. Was very lucky to be able to be a member of a very good team of runners at my high school, even though I was injured most of the time and was not able to be much of a contributor. Am currently doing an Engineering internship at a large manufacturer of Automotive transmissions, etc. It is really exciting. In spring of 2021, if COVID-19 has subsided, I am planning to serve an LDS mission, after which I plan to go to college and study Engineering.

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.

Today is the professional men's Ekiden national championship. I will relax and watch it on TV. Tomorrow and the next day will be the Hakone Ekiden race for University teams. Lots of good races on TV this New Years.

This morning I go into the hospital again for some tests.

I have the tests tomorrow, and will leave the hospital on Wednesday.

I am feeling much better than I was last time I went to the hospital, so I am sure there has been improvement.

I spent three days in the hospital this week. There has been some good improvement in my condition. My heart is looking much better. It appears I have some damage to my lungs. It is too early to know exactly to what extent they are damaged and if it will be permanent or not.

The doctor says that maybe I will be able to start doing a little easy jogging in a month or so if things continue to improve.
