Goal Type:

Boston Qualifier

Running Accomplishments:

Fastest Mile- 4:40 High School Track

Fastest 5K-16:50 High School Cross Country

Fastest 10K-40:30 Junior High School/Desert News 10K

Fastest Half Marathon - 1:40:15 Haunted Half Oct 2016

Short-Term Running Goals:

I've been a very active runner since High School ( I usually run 5-6 days a week) but I have yet to run a Marathon or any other competitive race since then. I want to get back into competitive running and hopefully have similar results like in High School. Although, last January 09 I got shin splints really bad and it took a good 6 months of rest and rehab to finally get back in the groove. I would like to run a sub 8 minute mile on my first Marathon but maybe I should just worry about finishing it first?   

Long-Term Running Goals:

I want to qualify for the Boston Marathon.


I'm 42 years old and I'm married! I enjoy the outdoors (Hunting, Camping, Backpacking)

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.
