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.

About 16 total. Paced the 1:40 group in the East Canyon half with Zach Talley. This is a small race, so we did not have much of a group. There were two girls with us for the first couple of miles, one of them was Lacie Mudrow, the other I am not sure, could be Brandy Lee based on the results, we will call her that. Brandy said she wanted to run 1:36. Lacie and Brandy sped up and took off. Zach and I ran alone for some time, then I suggested to him we should split - he would run the target 1:40 pace, while I would speed up and pace the slowest person that was headed for under 1:40. So I caught up to Lacie and Brandy. Then Brandy's pace ended up being too much for Lacie (I later learned her PR prior to this race was 2:00), so I stayed with Lacie. She gave it all she had and was on the ground afterwards, but the effort was worth it - she was able to run 1:39:40, a major PR.

I added 2 miles in the evening with Mary and Bella, and 0.25 with Leigha. Easy runs for the kids, sort of resting before Payson Onion Days 10 K on Monday.

Payson Onion Days 10K, 38:50, 4th overall, 1st master.

28 years ago I won this race while Sarah watched. We were not married yet. In fact, from her point of view, she was not even planning on it. I was about to go on a mission. A few days earlier I came to her Russian 102 class at BYU taught by Dr. Jarvis. At the end of the class he invited me to answer the students' questions. One student asked me "Do you have a wife, or a girlfriend?" My answer was "I do not have a wife". Afterwards I was in trouble with Sarah - she vehemently insisted that she was not my girlfriend.

But somehow I convinced her to come the race, which I won with the time of 35:37.

28 years later it just happened that Payson Onion Days was again on September 5th, and I had a son of the same age as me then but with an upgraded status - return missionary, masters degree, faster and with a woman that he was engaged to. We figured it was a perfect opportunity to attempt to re-create the history.

So he came, and won with 34:33 as Maddy watched. This is an accurate loop course at altitude and he got a bad spasm in the second half, so the time was slow. But still faster than what I ran 28 years ago.

Jacob was second with 37:04, Joseph third with 37:57.

We also had:

William 42:52 (9th overall, first in 1-13)
Matthew 43:20 (10th overall, 2nd in 1-13)
Bonnie 44:44 (1st overall woman)
Stephen 47:40 (14th overall, 3rd in 1-14)

Added 2 miles with Mary and Bella in the evening.

12 total. Paced Stephen in a 2 mile tempo down the canyon. He was struggling lately, so I gave him a modest target of 14:00, which he was able to beat by a lot running 14:19 (6:38, 6:41). Matthew helped me pace him.

Jacob did 3 miles down in 15:56 (5:15, 5:24, 5:21), almost a PR. Joseph ran the first 0.75 with him and then stopped.

Benjamin did 2x4 down 20:08, 20:30. Some spasming, but not too bad.

Easy runs, usual distances for everybody else.

16+ total. Did a 5 mile tempo down the canyon in 29:14 (5:57, 5:56, 5:49, 5:52, 5:40). Chad, Joseph, and I started together. Jacob started 1:00 behind us. Benjamin started 2:00 behind Jacob.

Joseph made it to 1.5 then stopped. Chad dropped back shortly before the 4 mile mark and finished in 29:31. Jacob passed us at around half way and finished in 27:28. He ran the first 3 in 16:32, then 5:36 and 5:20.

Benjamin had a good run. He passed us at around 3.5, and then Jacob shortly before 4. His time was 24:50 with the closing mile in 4:52, others being just a bit over 5:00 or a bit under. No spasms for the first time in a year for this kind of a workout.

Easy runs, usual distances for everybody else except William and Mary. William did only 5, Mary did 3.

13+ total, easy pace for everybody, usual distances, except I think William was still on reduced mileage.

Ran with Mary and Bella to Jamba Juice late in the evening. The distance by Google maps and by GPS was about 3.1, so pretty close to a 5K. Half way through Bella asked when it was closing. I told her she had plenty of time to get there, but she was still worried, and upped the pace. So they both ended up getting a 5 K PR equivalent. The time for the distance was 24:47, if we are to believe the GPS, they were just a few seconds short of the 5 K, so maybe 24:50.

18 total. Did a 6 mile tempo down the canyon in a rabbit chase in 35:31 (6:08, 5:56, 5:55, 5:52, 5:52, 5:50). Jacob started 34:26 starting 1:00 behind me. He caught up to me around 4, gapped me by about 5 seconds, but then I sped up a bit, and he had a side ache. So I was able to maintain it to the finish.

Benjamin ran 30:33 starting 3:00 behind. He start with 5:08, then ran sub-5:00 I think to 4, then had a micro-spasm, and ran I think 5:13, 5:17.

Joseph was not feeling well today, just ran the first mile with me.

William and Bonny did 1.25 down the canyon in 7:35.

Mary and Bella did 2, Matthew and Stephen did 6.

Paced Matthew with William's help through 2 miles in 12:30. He struggled today again. Perhaps still low iron.

Jacob did 4x1 mile down the canyon with 0.125 recovery, 5:18, 5:19(?), 5:24, 5:16. Benjamin paced him.

Joseph had a cold, ran reduced mileage. So did Bella. Stephen also had a cold, I think he ran less as well.

12 total. Jacob and I ran 3 miles down the canyon in 17:58 being rabbits for Benjamin. William ran the last 2 miles with us in 12:04.

Benjamin did 2x4 with long recovery. First one in 20:23, second in 20:56. In the second one he got a spams, it was not as bad as last week, but he started slower.

Otherwise, easy runs, usual distances except for Joseph, Mary, and Stephen, who ran reduced mileage.

16 total. Did a 6 mile tempo down the canyon in 35:30. Started with Chad, but he was not feeling strong today and stopped after about 1 mile. My splits were 6:06, 5:53, 5:58, 5:52, 5:57, 5:44. I was a second faster than last week, but this was mostly due to the heroic effort in the last mile trying to beat the time. On the plus I had the strength to support the heroic intentions.

Benjamin and Jacob rabbit-chased me with the same gaps of 3:00 and 1:00 respectively. Benjamin caught me a bit after 3, Jacob caught me at around 3.5. Benjamin ran 30:33 - fairly even pace to 4 miles in 20:03, then a spasm and 5:13, 5:17 - an improvement.

Jacob got 33:42. He opened I think with 5:53 (slow mile), then gradually caught up to the 5:40 average, then averaged 5:30 over the last 3 miles with the last mile I think in 5:22.

William and Bonnie ran 7:37 2000 on the track. Stephen and Matthew did 3, both had a cold. Mary and Bella did 2. Joseph did 8 if I remember right.
