Running Accomplishments:

Quantcast

 I ran for Utah State University for a few years from 1999-2002. I got a little burned out and took a break from running. Now 10 years later, I feel that there is still faster running left to accomplish. I started running again in mid-summer of 2012. I had a short spurt in 2009, but work got in the way.

I now fly the University of Utah AirMed (Lifeflight) airplane base in Rock Springs WY.

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.

Plan was 12 to 14. Only did 12 because I was tired. Knowing that Phoenix is in a week, a 90 min run was enough.

Feeling pretty good. however, I took a good spill onto my knee at .05 miles from my house.

PM. My knee is not doing good. It is very stiff and a little swolen. I am icing it a lot. I only hope that I can run on it on Saturday.

No run. I tried warming up on an exercise bike. Then I tried running on the treadmill at marathon pace and couldn't do it.

My knee is not doing well. I think that when I slipped, I hyper extended it. I am not very confident that I will be able to run on Saturday.

Race: The Phoenix Marathon (26.2 Miles) 02:51:38, Place overall: 15, Place in age division: 3

I was lucky to have even been able to start the race because of my fall on Tuesday. Not thrilled about my time. I went through the half what as planned 1:21:10. I am happy with my effort. I think going from a pr of 2:45 and trying for a sub 2:40 might be to much. Maybe baby steps. I did break top 15 and 3rd in my age group. Which were both goals. However Jasmine passed me with about .5 to go.

I will post more later. Time for some family time in this hot weather.
