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
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)
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.
