Short-Term Running Goals:

I would like to run an Olympic Trials Qualifier in the marathon.

 Stay healthy!  (My biggest challenge!)

Help coach East High to a state championship. (hope it doesn't take a lifetime!)

Personal:

I've been running since I was nine.  I'm married to a fellow runner who inspires and supports me.  We have two children:  Cole (4) and Lily (18 mos.)  I help Bill Cobler coach cross country at East High School.

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.

I wore a new pair of fleece lined leggings today.  They were heaven.  I want three more pairs.  My butt didn't get cold.

Longest run in quite awhile.  Ran with Devra, Tee, and Emily.  Back to back 50 mile weeks?  Watch out! I might get in shape or something.  Until I have a new show to work on.
