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

College 

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. 

 

Personal:

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.

I'M BACK!!!!!!!! Had a great mission and now I am getting ready to go again for BYU. 

6 miles easy, though it should have been a lot easier at that pace.

7 miles. Titan 10, some core. Exhausting but that is to be expected. Afterwards feels good though.

A short run. Some strength exercises at home. About midway through had lower calf pain that didn't get worse till the end of the run.

10 miles. Pretty fatiguing. I realize how nice it is to run with other people. They really distract you from the pain you feel. But it's ok. This'll make me stronger.

This is exciting! I ran 8 miles today and was wayy faster than last week and it also felt quite a bit easier. This is the first real, tangible difference I've seen in my running. Awesome! I was feeling it a little in my stomach though on the way back becasue of breakfast and decided to not do strides.

Really wacko run since my four year old running watch basically decided to die on me. I was supposed to run 7 miles and I think that's about what I ended up doing. Also four strides, not super hard like last time but a lot more controlled.

Hmm. I did my long run up RoxyAnn again. Today was the first day I tracked my run on mapmyrun afterward, where I found out my run was actually just 9.42 miles. That means I really was hardly going under 8 minute mile pace. Now, remember that there is a 1200 foot elevation gain involved, but still. Pazienza. 

RIP IRON MAN TRIATHLON WATCH. You have carried me for four or five years. From my rise in high school to one of the faster runners in the district, to freezing cold tempo runs training for track my senior year, to those early morning summer mile repeats as I prepared to walk on at BYU, to two years of serving the Lord and trying not to be late to appointments. You've served me well :)

8 miles, felt good. Strides on a not super even surface. I think it helps to do core before I run because it wakes me up and I'm not too tired.

Nice good long run doing more than one roxy Ann loop. Honestly I felt like it was faster than 7:35 pace but apparently that's what it was. I felt like I was rolling. Core.

Nice 7 miler up Roxyann. Though I haven't run Too many miles in them, I've had my shoes since January 1, 2015, and it seems like it's time for a new pair.

First double on a full work day. Didn't go bad at all. Tonight I felt super hungry as I ran and therefore tired, but I think that'll go away once I get used to night running again. T10/IP.
