Seattle Rock and Roll Marathon 2010 = 3:07 (in Five Fingers Bikilas)
1500 meters this summer = 4:36
Ran 30 miles on my 30th birthday (Feb 7 2010)
Short-Term Running Goals:
Break 3 hours in the marathon
Run a trail ultra
Find a way to run high mileage without injuring myself. My current theory is that transitioning out of my super-cushioned shoes into more minimalist shoes or bare feet will help improve my form and make this possible.
Long-Term Running Goals:
Run a 100 mile race.
I am happily married to Jenni. We have three energetic little boys who also enjoy to run. Jenni and I are both going to try learning how to run without shoes this year.
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.
