Goal Type:

NCAA Champ

Running Accomplishments:

High School:

I broke Alan Webb's HS mile record with a... well, if anyone is actually reading this, I guess I'll be honest:

XC 5K: 15:57

1500: 4:04.55

800: 2:01.05

400: 53.07

3000: 9:18


5000: 13:59.58 (UW Indoor Invite 2021)

Mile: 4:07 (converted from 4:12.06 at altitude; also converted by NCAA to 3:48.8 for 1500)

Indoor 3000: 8:14 (converted from 8:24.76 at BYU indoor race, 1/16/21)

10000: 29:57 (West Coast Relays 2021)

800: 1:55.6@ (solo time trial at Provo high school)

400: 51.84h


Short-Term Running Goals:

-Stay healthy and don't burn out; a healthy runner is always faster than an injured one!

-Qualify for and be all American at nationals (top 40)

-Help my team accomplish any team goals, including running at nationals

Long-Term Running Goals:

-Break age group American records or at least get into the top 10 by continuing to find time to train and taking care of my body in other ways, including by eating a healthy diet, long after most people have quit competitive running.

-Break stroller 10K and half marathon records when we have kids. 

-Run Boston pretty fast at least once. 



I am a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. I served a mission in Rome, Italy from 2015 to 2017. I eat a whole food, plant-based diet, which I believe helps my running. I like chocolate shakes on sunday nights and I will always call the Pacific northwest home. 

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.

LR on Como Ave out past Como Lake onto Wheelock parkway and then looping on to Gateway state trail. This whole week hasn't felt like that high of mileage which is nice. 6:30 avg.

1 minute on, 1 minute off (6 minute pace ish) for 20 minutes total. And 6 by 20 secs on hills. Was a little stressed about some things which is never good to bring into running but that's life.

AM: 10 miles and weights 

PM: 5 miles east on Como Ave towards Como park. I loved it! Nice place. I think I've found my double run, or at least one of them.

Workout at a cool place on the St. Paul UMN campus in these agricultural fields. 500, 3xmile, 500, 2xmile, 500. This workout did not feel very good for me. I just felt like I was dying. I would have been better off finishing my food earlier but that should be taken care of next week. But I feel positive about it because this was my first interval workout. I feel a little behind the game not doing this till mid September but in reality what this means probably is that I/we will come on really strong at the end of the season. That's no excuse for not running well next week though. 87, 5:00, 5:00, 5:00, 86, 4:56, 4:56, 87 is what I remember them being about. Doesn't really matter, its a weird and not very fast loop.

AM: 10 miles.

PM: 5 miles. 


This will be the blog post where I list runs I have found in my new area (Twin Cities) much like I did in Mapleton. Here goes:

-St. Anthony Parkway: Go north on Industrial and follow the pathway for at least 10 miles, although you could continue on for more.

-Minneapolis Diagonal: Head west on Hennepin, then right on 18th. You'll have to improve after the 3.5 mile mark or so. 

-West River Parkway

-East River Parkway

-East on Como Ave. To Como park and east on the parkway.

-Silverwood Park to Rice Creek?

-Gatway state trail headed northeast (park at Arlington Arkwright park? 13 min drive)

Long run, half of it with team. Hurdle drills. Hernia felt fine, felt my hamstring but a little bit less, I also had a charlie horse in my upper calve last night but that shouldn't be a major issue.
