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.

Yikes. Today I ran toward Home Depot because it was the flattest way to do my first workout in years. First note Is that I've become an expert at running a decent pace, but running consistently fast on this fartlek was pretty awkward for my body. It wasn't very pretty but I'll get back into it soon. Second thing is that I wasn't able to run for as hard or as long as I had hoped because of my bursa. I am starting to realize why and with some good care am confident that within a couple days of recovery I'll be ready to go again.

Great run up Roxyann. It was easy and I was going pretty fast. Today I wasn't supposed to be recovering so it was more aerobic. I tried a new trail they have there. Won't make that mistake again. It's a miracle my ankles are still intact. Core/T10

Well, in the same way that my slow work sped up a lot in the first month I was doing it, I hope my fast work does to. There is certainly room to improve. On a rainy morning I went down to Bear Creek and the bike path to do a tempo run. I FINISHED IT! Bursa was alright. It was slow; 24 minutes for exactly 4 miles. But soon afterward I felt fine. Like some part of my body isn't ready to go faster yet but the rest is.

Its good to note that despite working 21 hours at the retirement home the last three days, I didn't feel any lingering exhaustion from that.
