I was an 800/1500 runner in high school and college, with PRs of 1:55 and 4:08. I've run as fast as 16:15 for 5k and 1:20 for a half, but my bests in recent years are 17:07 5k (Dec. '11), 37:40 10k (Jan. '12), 1:23:49 half (Sept. '08), 2:53:12 marathon (September '10), and 4:45:06 50k (March '10).

Short-Term Running Goals:

Late 2015/2016 races: 

— Seattle Soltice 10k (Dec. 19)

— Nookachamps half marathon (Jan. 16)

— Toyko Marathon (Feb. 28) 


I'm an editor at a newspaper in Bremerton, Washington and head coach of the Bremerton Jaguars youth track and field team.

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.

First Jaguars practice of the year. I ran 4x800 with a group of 9- and 10-year-old boys, at about 7/min. pace. Then another 4 by myself around the track after practice.

Really easy running around Bremerton High with a group of Jaguar girls, we got kicked off the track so I didn't get any additional miles in tonight. 31 minutes or so, with a few hill repeats.

Henry was in town, so Mike and I met him at Annapolis for 10 miles. No watch, but we were pretty pepped up to see him and certainly ran quicker than we should have. Some sub-7s, I'm sure, and Henry was laboring by the finish. I was a little stiff from a Friday night bike ride, but other than that a good run on a sunny morning.
