Goal Type:

Marathon Finish

Running Accomplishments:

A marathon runner just trying to enjoy good health and running long. 22 years between marathon 6 & 7, raising kids. 48 marathons and counting. Average finishing time ~  3:25. Want to keep this average above 3:30 as I continue to age deepin into my 50's.   Looking for a 3:12 in SLC 2012

Short-Term Running Goals:

Keep my SL Marathon time in "teens". Possibly break the teens (3:12 - 3:00).  Two screws in right knee gives me a reality check on my ambitions. I don't want to sacrafice my joint for too crazy of a goal. Good health is my real goal.

Long-Term Running Goals:

Continue running strong into my 60's, and add to my marathon count.  In 1982 I finished St. George at 2:57, 1 second behind a 60 year old. I've always  wondered if I could break 3 hours when I'm in my 60's. I'd like to find out.

Personal:

Married 26 years. Rosalie and I have 4 children. Love running hills, especially up Millcreek Canyon. I live 3/4 mile from its base.

Redrock Marathon 2011: 3:33 - major accomplish. 3,300' elevation gain.

SLC Marathon 2009, 2010 & 2011 : 3:15

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.

Nice Sunday run up the canyon to the gate. Snowed all day Saturday, and even along my entire run, lasting 1:28.

Monster in 50:22. Right heel burned for first 1/2 mile only. Then felt better. Hoping it will not bother me too much Saturday.

Nice weather. SL is getting cheap with this race. There was no GU. None. Run this 6 times. There have always been GU at 13 and 16. Not this time. Also, the logo's on the shirts are insanely cheap. Simply an iron on patch. No silk screen. Weather was excellent, at 48 degrees to start. Tossed my gloves and short sleeve overshirt at mile 9. My 8 mile split was 55 min. Half split was 1:33. 16 mile split was 1:53. My radio lasted for 3 minutes between 15 and 16. Then it went dead. I was bummed.  Slowed down too much but finished good at 3:16:31. If I ran this right, and if my right leg was feeling better, could have got 3:14, maybe even better.
