Pre-high school: I ran a lot of local 5ks and a few half marathons.  I didn't do a ton of training, but I just had fun, and I got more serious about it as high school got closer.

High school: I enjoyed running a lot, especially cross country.  I originally did track to keep my in shape for cross country.  I ran at Footlocker Nationals, the Adidas Dream mile, Brooks PR Invitational, world xc junior championships, and a few local 5ks.

Long-Term Running Goals:

School records in the 5km and 10km.  

Personal:

Served a mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints from July 2015-July 2017.  I gained 30 lbs. during the service and came back out of shape; however I knew that if the Lord wanted me to once again run competitively, he would bless me to return to fitness. 

I graduated from Sky View High School in Smithfield, Utah. I currently run for Brigham Young University in Provo, Utah.

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.

AM-5.3 miles. I felt pretty tired. 

PM-3 mile warm up, 5 mile tempo in 24:08 (4:55, 4:54, 4:48, 4:47, 4:41), 2.7 mile cool down.  Coach had Casey as the govenor for the first two miles, then Milly and I began pushing the pace. Casey took the lead for part of the last mile.  Good workout.

AM-18.1 miles.  I felt a bit tired at the end, and decided to just do 18.  I probably should've done 20, but it's alright.

AM-5.5 easy miles.

PM-6-8x800m at K park all uphill.  I didn't feel too great on the warm up.  Had a few issues with having to go to the bathroom.  First one was 2:20, second one I didn't finish, but just went to the bathroom.  The next few didn't go too great, so I just stayed with Casey.  Averaged 2:19 I think.  With the hills, turns and how I felt, I count it as a good workout.

PM-2x2 mile.  First was at tempo at Intramural field.  We went off the wheel today, which I prefer.  9:40.  Second one we had a fast 800 (goal was 2:15), tempo mile (goal was 4:50), and faster finish 800 (goal was 2:15).  We were 2:12 at 800, 4:51 for the tempo mile, and 2:15 for the finish.  When we passed coach at the start of the last lap he reminded us to not kill ourselves, so we chilled at 2:15.

AM-8.45 on the course.  It looks sweet and I'm excited to race here.  Some quad pain again, which makes me a bit nervous. Felt some quad pain, and had our trainer look at it. I also felt it a few weeks ago, but this feels a bit worse.

PM-3.1 easy miles on the treadmill.

AM-1:55 on the arc trainer.  Felt exhausted the rest of the day and didn't do anything else.  Good week, most of the biking times were over 1 hour, I just didn't write it down, but I know at minimum they were an hour.  Overall, a very good week workout wise, but I can't wait to run again.
