I have ran seven half marathons, some 10k's and 5k"s. My favorite marathon is SGM.I have ran 13 Marathons, will be during my first Ultra in march of 2013, it will be the Antalope Island Buffalo Run, a 50k.

Short-Term Running Goals:

Short term running goal is to increase my four days a week of running to five to six days a week.  Do more speed work this coming year. Bring my times down. I would like to do SGM in 4 hrs or less.

Keep up with my Brother Clay in a marathon, someday do a sub four hour marathon, and BQ.

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.

It was about 10 degrees colder for todays run around 13 which made for a very brisk run. I ran out to Harry's Hill, stopped about a mile short and turned back. My face was frozen and I just felt cold all over, Pushed hard coming back so was able to mix some speed work in. I did 25 min on the bowflex again and finished with 200 crunches. Starting to do some leg lifts for the lower tummy and it is a bit on the sore side.

Nice long run today, I headed out to little Bros. house in Salem hopping to run into him along the way. He was at gu corner, so I ran to his house and back. It was good to have the company today. Made for a very injoyable run, I did feel pretty good most of the way and hope that I am ready for Painter's Half next week. We shall see.
