Member Since:

Gender:

Male

Goal Type:

Olympic Trials Qualifier

Running Accomplishments:

Best marathon: 2:23:57 (2007, St. George). Won the Top of Utah Marathon twice (2003,2004). Won the USATF LDR circuit in Utah in 2006.

Draper Days 5 K 15:37 (2004)

Did not know this until June 2012, but it turned out that I've been running with spina bifida occulta in L-4 vertebra my entire life, which explains the odd looking form, struggles with the top end speed, and the poor running economy (cannot break 16:00 in 5 K without pushing the VO2 max past 75).  

 

Short-Term Running Goals:

Qualify for the US Olympic Trials. With the standard of 2:19 on courses with the elevation drop not exceeding 450 feet this is impossible unless I find an uncanny way to compensate for the L-4 defect with my muscles. But I believe in miracles.

Long-Term Running Goals:

2:08 in the marathon. Become a world-class marathoner. This is impossible unless I find a way to fill the hole in L-4 and make it act healthy either by growing the bone or by inserting something artificial that is as good as the bone without breaking anything important around it. Science does not know how to do that yet, so it will take a miracle. But I believe in miracles.

Personal:

I was born in 1973. Grew up in Moscow, Russia. Started running in 1984 and so far have never missed more than 3 consecutive days. Joined the LDS Church in 1992, and came to Provo, Utah in 1993 to attend BYU. Served an LDS mission from 1994-96 in Salt Lake City, Utah. Got married soon after I got back. My wife Sarah and I are parents of eleven children: Benjamin, Jenny, Julia, Joseph, Jacob, William, Stephen, Matthew,  Mary,  Bella.  and Leigha. We home school our children.

I am a software engineer/computer programmer/hacker whatever you want to call it, and I am currently working for RedX. Aside from the Fast Running Blog, I have another project to create a device that is a good friend for a fast runner. I called it Fast Running Friend.

Favorite Quote:

...if we are to have faith like Enoch and Elijah we must believe what they believed, know what they knew, and live as they lived.

12 total. Ran a mile with Sarah in 9:39. She thought she was to sick to run with a goal. I told her to run with a goal of 11:00 mile. She got 9:39 instead. Did a pickup for 0.5 in 3:00 to catch up to Stephen, did not like how it felt, did another pickup for 1 mile in 5:58. Still did not like it but it was better. What I did like was my mindset of fighting adversity. I did not want to run the pickup at all, and I wanted to stop half way through it, but I did run, did not stop, and reached my goal of sub-6:00.

Stephen ran 2 miles in 13:56. However, this was very uneven. His first mile was 6:30, and then he started stumbling in a way that is similar to what has been happening to Benjamin. But in spite of that he did reach the goal of 14:00.

Jacob did 1.5 in 7:39, then waited for us, and ran the last 0.5 with us.

Salt Lake Track Club Winter Series 5K, 19:13 33rd overall, 2nd in 50-54.

Kids:

Jacob 17:04 10th PR
William 19:36 35th
Matthew 20:02 36th PR
Bella 23:43 19th woman PR
Stephen 23:46 63rd (Bella's pacer)
Mary 25:52 31st woman
Leigha 29:39 44th woman first 5 K
Julia 29:40 45th woman Leigha's pacer
Sarah 34:24 69th woman

I was happy that I was able to run a decent time in spite of struggling in the workouts this week.

Leigha gave us a pleasant surprise breaking 30:00 in her first 5 K. Other kids ran more or less where I expected them to be based on their workouts. Jacob, Matthew, and Bella got PRs.

12 total. Did 2x2 down the canyon. On the first one I was able to run 11:45. Matthew and William kicked at the end and I could not keep up with them. William ran 11:42, Matthew 11:44 (PR). Jacob ran 10:10 (I think 5:01, 5:09).

Then Jacob paced me on the second interval. I did not think I would be able to run faster, I was just hoping for sub-12:00, but I toughened up and found 11:42. I was happy about that.

You should always try for a higher goal even if you feel doubtful. Sometimes your doubts are not justified. When you prove your doubts wrong, it is an important victory. This is how your mind and your spirit grow one little step at a time.
