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.

10 miles up canyon. These days when I don't have work in the morning I usually take the baby for an hour or so and don't leave till later. That means I have the eat, and while digestive problems thankfully haven't been an issue, I do feel hypoglycemic and tired. I'll have to try to fix that.

9 miles. We are in a heat wave so honestly I was happy with the fact that I didn't feel too too hot.

(update - ran farther than I thought cuz I was actually going 6:33s).

13 miles. Found a new way to get to the SF canal trail past the Golden Gate Bridge. I think it's about a 5.5 mile run so on a 20 miler I could do 9 miles on the trail itself if I wanted to.

Bad bad sleep last night. Actually felt good on my run despite the fact that it was a harder course- did power lines trail for the first time in a year and loved it. Maybe it was because of the cooler weather. I'll have to get out earlier to run during our heat wave next week. So the trip to Minneapolis will be about 1270 miles. From the beginning of June (which is about when I started summer training) till the end of August I plan to complete about 1150 miles. So I am tracking my "journey to Minnesota" this summer for fun. At 120 miles in, I am no past Evanston Wyoming!

AM: 10 miles. Really feels a lot worse when I get out late.

PM: 5 crazy miles running through swarms of bugs on the only half mile route I could on our camp out. Later that evening it started storming and the lightning lit a fire so we evacuated and I got home at 1:30 am. Woke up this morning feeling yucky and hips hurting.

Ran after getting off the plane at 11:30 in 85 degrees with next to no diet planning and little sleep. So understandably I gave myself permission to feel however I needed to today. Somehow I actually felt pretty good!

AM: 9 miles on power lines. Hip started hurting. Think it is trochanter bursitis. I think it had to do with all the hill running and because my Achilles were not doing great, I overworked my hips on the uphills. 
 

PM: 5 insanely windy miles. As of the next morning I still have something in my eye. Hip hurt bad.

9 slow miles. By no means am I out of the woods yet, but I bought myself another day to strengthen and stretch and rest.
