Won the AAU 3,000 at age 12. I quit running until my freshman year because I was concentrating on playing Ping Pong with my buddies. During my freshman year I beat Greg Harris in a race by 5 minutes! Right now I am currently dropped out of school and pursuing a Street Ball scholarship on the And 1 Tour.
Short-Term Running Goals:
This track season I am hoping to run a 9:03 in the 2 Mile. My current time in the 2 mile is 9:54.
I enjoy long strolls in the Park, with my dog. Michael Jordan is my first cousin, and if you were wondering I am half Ethiopian.
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 ran in the morning and it was nice wheather. I tried to run my miles at 7:30 pace. I am running a lot more miles than the team. They are at 3 or 4 a day.
