Personal:

 I started running competitively in 2005 and ran my first marathon in 2005. Now retired from competitive racing.

Bend down, O Lord, and hear my prayer;

answer me, for I need your help.
Protect me, for I am devoted to you.
Save me, for I serve you and trust you.
You are my God.
Be merciful to me, O Lord,
for I am calling on you constantly.
Give me happiness, O Lord,
for I give myself to you.
O Lord, you are so good, so ready to forgive,
so full of unfailing love for all who ask for your help.
Listen closely to my prayer, O Lord;
hear my urgent cry.
I will call to you whenever I’m in trouble,
and you will answer me.  - Psalm 86:1-7

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.

I never know if running helps or hurts my colds.I always run through them, but I took a few days off last time. Not sure it did anything. It usually gets things loosened up, which always feels good.

When you asked me about meeting friends here, I should have responded that most of my friendships are at a distance (friends from Purdue) and my best friend (who was my best man) I've only interacted with in person maybe 10-12 times. We spent many many hours on Skype.

FRB has played a similar role. Cheers!

Ran into a young man walking alone in the dark looking for the "end of Sunnyside" to walk to as part of a scout project.  He was carrying a big backpack and a sleeping bag.  He was maybe 13 with no adult supervision walking alone in the cold dark morning...seemed strange.  So we chatted for a minute with him then called the police to check on him further as this seemed really off. 

5 miles on a warmer but cloudy day at lunch.  Needed this one for a work related stress reliever and time to think about issue resolution. (Ride 5)

No run today.  We are in West Yellowstone taking a snowcoach tour into Yellowstone National Park to Old Faithful and back.  Beautiful park in the winter and nice to not have hundreds of thousands of other tourist to compete with.  Cold and snowy though.  Lots of wildlife (bison, elk, coyotes, swans).

No run today.  My entire family is fighting off a nasty cold for the past 3-4 days.  Then normal 2 hour drive back home took 4 hours as we had to wait to have a semitrailer pulled out of a ditch just outside of West Yellowstone (2 hour delay).  Once down the hill to Ashton the roads were clear.

Once home, spent the day just taking it easy as we were all still sick. Hope this gets over with quickly.

Michael has been an integral part of the running and cycling community for a number of years and is very much the person to credit for our area having a running, cycling, and triathlon community. It could be said that Michael is the grandfather of the running community here. This is quite fitting as the care and concern he offered all of us is much like one would receive from their own grandfather. As the owner of Personal Best, he created and organized some of our areas finest races; but more than that, Michael touched countless lives with his loving spirit. Michael always had a kind word of praise or encouragement for everyone around him.

Is Justin starting his senior year this fall?

From jtshad on Sun, Aug 13, 2017 at 08:18:17 from 173.198.176.201

Yes, he is a senior. Looking at colleges...recruited by 7 schools as of yesterday...not showing much interest in running for a college. Wants to go into economics/intl business and law.

It was really cool being in the totality. Cool to see the corona, interesting to watch it get dark, temp dropped 20 degrees, amazing eerie feeling. Once in a lifetime experience.

Justin had another recruiting conversation with a college coach last night. Cool.  Hope we can figure out his injury issue though, this senior season is not working out well right now. College coaches have been great in telling him to focus on getting healed up instead of pushing it. Not the same locally, sad.  5 offers from coaches to run on their college teams so far, several more in discussion.  Kansas schools really like him!

Saw doctor, appears to be a sartorius strain/tear.  Getting MRI this week and will find out more Thursday.  Resting from running until we know more.

Results of Justin's MRI later today.  Justin has a labral tear in his right hip likely caused by his fall at the USNA this summer.  His knee has no structure issues but a bad case of tendonitis.  Now we need to work with the docs on the path forward...knee most likely rest after and an investigative injection; hip look at PRP or maybe surgery, need to get some opinions (vary widely on the internet).  He is out of racing for at least 3 weeks for a miraculous return or rest of season. 

Too busy today for a second run.

From shellberns on Fri, Sep 15, 2017 at 14:53:03 from 108.26.198.31

Hi Jeff, I wanted to reach out after reading this about Justin. I have studied up on labral tears in the hip because I was diagnosed with one in 2013. If you do decide to see a doctor for his hip, Dr. Aoki at U of U orthopedics is the guy. I saw 3 Doctors and he was by far the most experienced and very non-aggressive about the procedure. I know that Lyndsi Davis also has some experience with him because he did her sons surgery. Hope this helps and you're doing well. Take care!

From jtshad on Fri, Sep 15, 2017 at 19:45:19 from 173.198.176.201

Thanks Shelley. Dr. Aoki is the person our PA mentioned. Need to see if surgery or something else (PRP) is the right path forward. Frustrated and pissed off.

From jtshad on Sat, Sep 16, 2017 at 07:53:25 from 173.198.176.201

Shelley, did you have surgery to get it repaired? Did you think about PRP or stem cell injections first?

From shellberns on Sun, Sep 17, 2017 at 07:58:09 from 108.26.198.31

I did not end up having the surgery. There are a lot of things I considered but in the end, I did a lot of PT and focused strengthening that I still do religously. I did not do PRP or Stem Cell injections. Not because I didn't want to, I just kept doing what started working. My hip is a lot better now but I still have pain, weakness and muscle imbalances that I anticipate having the rest of my life. I'm not a fast or competitive runner and I know this condition has definitely held me back but I guess I'm ok with it. I assumed at some point that I would end up having the repair done but right now, it's still manageable. I'm sorry that Justin (you and Kami, too) are dealing with this. I have talked with many people who have successfully rehabbed this injury and also people who have made 100% recovery from surgery. It's a complicated issue and there isn't one solution for everyone, unfortunately.

Justin went to the doc, appears to be good news on his hip and knee.  No knee issues, just referred pain from the hip. Hip prognosis is full recovery with 99% no surgery or more advanced treatment (e.g. PRP) necessary.  Probably not back by end of this XC season, but no long term issues!

Congrats to IFHS XC boys for winning state 4A.  Bummer that Justin could not be a part of it after working hard all through high school and getting injured before his senior season.  We have a really sad young man on our hands.  We celebrate with the boys though.  Justin will come out stronger for the experience (and has diversified greatly into other activities and opportunities) one of which could likely be running in college.  Still hard to tell him that God has a reason for this challenge.

4 miles in 16 degrees with Moxie before church to hit 3,100 miles for the year.  Over 1,000 miles with Moxie this year! 3.25 miles with Justin through the neighborhood on a nice afternoon. (Supernova)

A quick review of my running stats (for my own validation) since I started training for marathons and really tracking mileage in 2005. Prior to 2005, I didn't track mileage and ran at most 3 times a week for about 2-5M each time for the previous 5 years (2000-2004) as I was more focused on weight lifting and tennis in this period. Estimate that I ran about 3,000 miles total prior to making running my central athletic focus in 2005.

Mileage pre 2005: 3,000 miles (est.)

Mileage 2005-2006: 3,878 miles (Coolrunning.com)

Mileage 2007-2016: 34,409 miles (2963 - '07, 3706 - '08, 3760 - '09, 3659 - ‘10, 3725 - '11, 3468 – ’12, 3256 – ’13, 3395 – ’14, 3306 – ’15, 3171 – ‘16)

Mileage to date 2017: 3,104 miles (12/31/17).  Ran the equivalent distance from New Meadows, ID to Key West, FL!

Total lifetime miles:  44,392 miles
