Running Accomplishments:

St George Marathon 2008 = 3:05

Boston Marathon 2009 = 3:07

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.

Personal:

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.

Ran for about two hours after work and ended at a Volunteer park. It was a beautiful evening. We had a picnic dinned and watched Shakespeare in the Park, a local outdoor theater production. All in all, a great evening.

Today I ran up (and down) Mt Si with my brother in law, AJ. This is a popular Seattle area hike with 3000 ft elevation gain in the 4 miles. It was quite a workout. And it was my first really rocky run in the five fingers bikilas. They worked great on the way up, and for the first two miles of the way down. Then my feet got sick of being poked by sharp rocks.
