1500: 4:04.55

800: 2:01.05

400: 53.07

3000: 9:18

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

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.

Warm outside for a workout. But it was a really pretty spring day. Coach had me do just a templ mile and some 800s because I was coming off a 10K. My workout wasn't terrible, and typically so soon after such a race you set your standards really low, so overall I feel very good about it. My favorite part was during the second 800, we went out in 64. Then on the second lap it got really hard. I fought to hang on and run a 2:12- and then we got to the end and it was 2:08! Pleasant surprise. 4:56 tempo mile, then 2:12, 2:08, 2:08 with over 3 min rest between 800s.

8 by K with one minute rest. Felt grateful to be able to keep track of pace by running at the Loudon County track. Goal was to run race pace for next week (72s). It hurt pretty bad. 2:56, 2:58, 2:57, 2:58, 2:58, 2:59, 2:57, 2:56. I think it gave me good practice running hard laps on my own without giving up. I'll need that in my race. Little windy but weather was otherwise good and it wasn't a super confidence boosting workout other than the fact that I finished hard without dying and I have gone REALLY slow here before in an admittedly hotter workout.

Tried not to take it too fast. But ended up running pretty quick and feeling pretty good after a slow start. Not sure why at sea level my best workouts seem to always be long ones on bike paths (not that this was a workout). My miles on the path were 6:00, 5:54, 5:56, 5:40, 5:51, 5:47, 5:45, 5:53. Felt pretty chill and even did some nose breathing toward the end of that. Now have to start feeling good for next week.
