Running Accomplishments:

Pre-highschool: I loved to run and ran a few small local 5k's, but I did not run much on my own, besides junior high track.

Freshman year: I ran cross country and traied wih the team most of the summer.  When the season started I ran 3 races including Murray Invitational.  I got a huge PR there but after the race my foot hurt and I had a hard time walking. I ran on it for the next week but it was not getting better, so I went to a Sports MD and found out that i had a stress fracture.  Becaue of that injury I missed the rest of the season. Then I ran track for my junior high but did not do extremely well.

Sophmore year: I trained hard over the summer and I got a 3 minute PR on my first race.  I continued to PR, and had a good, injury free season. I ran indoor track an had some good PRs. I ran at simplot and had a great time. I did track and  ran some goodtimes and cut my time down by 15 seconds, I was hoping that I could get low 5's in the mile, but I had fun and was able to race at the steepechase and have a fun time through out the season. At sophmore region I was able to PR in the 800 and I missed my PR in the mile by 2 seconds.

Junior year: I ran a little over 500 miles over the summer, but wasn't improving how I would have liked over the season. I was not consistant at all and was sick for aboout 3 races. I finally had a good race at region and dropped a 46 second pr. Track went well, I went sub-5 in the mile finally and got a PR in the 2 mile pretty easily. I didn't really hit the times I had hoped for throughout the season due to sickness and I just wasn't in it.

PRs:

800: 2:11

1600: 4:56.35

3200: 11:17.47

3 mile: 17:41

5k: 18:07

Short-Term Running Goals:

Cross Country 2016:

Run 650 to 700 summer miles SUCCESS

Low 15's on the 5K and Sub 15 3 mile

Place at region and state

Go to footlocker nationals

Track 2017:

Sub 4:20 mile

Sub 9:15 on the 3200

Sub 2:00 on the 800

Sub 6:25 on steeple chase

Qualify for State, Arcadia, and Great South West, and become the best runner I can be.

Long-Term Running Goals:

Run cross country and track in college. Keep improving and just having fun. I'll probably run an ultra or two for the heck of it and to see if I like them.

Personal:

I'm a Senior at Weber High School. I am LDS and plan on serving a mission before college. I'm a member of The Hobbyjogger Project.

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.

My teacher was sick for my physical therapy class, so I didn't have to go to school till 11. I did a 6 mile run in the rain and just chilled the rest of the morning. After school I met up with a couple of the guys and we did an easy 6 around North Odgen.

I did an easy 5 this morning before school. At practice we did a shorter version of the workout I did friday at the lomond view park hills. We did 10 up the long hill and then 2 up the steep part. All of my splits were between 49-50 although my first one may have been a 51... and I think I hay have hit a 47 or 48 in there if I remember correctly...

5 miles this morning. At practice we did 7 miles, I was super happy because I averaged sub 6 minute pace, which I've never done before on a longish run. It was even fairly hilly. We went down 1000 past Orion, and up washington back to weber.

I ran over to the track and did a little more to get to a mile warmup. I did 8 x 200's. My splits were 32, 31, 31, 30, 30, 30, 28, 29. Later today Add, Talon, and me met up at to top of the pass for a long run. We were planning on going 8 to 13. We started and decided to got the longer distance of 13, so we kept going to lewis peak. It was hecka hilly and insane! We got to the peak in like 53 minutes or something, so we were just around 9 minute pace. We headed back down and were planning on getting on the trail down to windsurfer beach. We got on a trail and kept running up some crazy hills until we got about 2 miles, where we got cliffed out and ran the wrong direction. We ran back 2 miles to where we got on the trail and headed in the correct direction. Needless to say, after a crap ton of hills and 18 miles, we were all pretty dead when we finished at windsurfer. We all took a nice dip in the lake and then stopped at valley market to get some food. It really was a ton of fun, it's experiences and adventures like these that I will never forget.
