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.

USATF Utah Cross-Country Championship.

I ran the 5 K in 19:55.3. Teren wheeled the courses, and there were accurate 1KM marks. Doug's system even recorded official splits by KM. Mine were 3:53.1, 3:55.5, 4:06.0, 3:55.4, 4:05.3. I was happy to dip under 20 on an accurate cross-country course one more time.

Kids:

5К

Joseph 18:57.3 (3:40.5, 3:44.4, 3:53.5, 3:49.9, 3:49.2).


Jacob 18:29.9 (3:25.8, 3:31.1, 3:52.6, 3:51.0, 3:49.4)

William 20:57.0 (3:55.5, 3:56.4, 4:05.7, 4:25.4, 4:34.0)

Bonnie 22:20.0 (4:00.1, 4:18.2, 4:39.0, 4:49.1, 4:33.6).

4К

Stephen 18:39.7 (04:09.2,04:47.5,04:53.0,04:50.0)

3K

Matthew 11:32.4 (03:38.8,03:51.9,04:01.7)

Mary 17:02.0
(04:44.0,05:47.6,06:30.4)

2 K

Bella 09:18.5
(04:20.8,04:57.7)

Bella became the 9-10 State Champion. Matthew was 6th.

Jacob had the run that I was expecting based on his training. We need to figure something out with this slowdown after the start. Joseph had not been training super-hard due to his knee pain issue. I was happy that he was able to run an even pace, though.

William was running great up until about half-way through. He passed me. But then he faded. His lack of serious training showed. He has not been super-motivated to run enough miles, though he does get out every day.

Mary was sick with a cold, but I think there was a mental issue involved as well. She started crying mid-race, and learned again that crying and competitive running do not mix.

Stephen learned the same lesson. He had a decent start, but then started swatting flies and crying, which resulted in him getting beat by Bella. I gave him a challenge to beat Bella's time twice. He said he thought it would be easy, I warned him that with his history it would not. And he ended up 3 seconds behind the target. But at least he averaged sub-8:00, which he had not always been able to do in a state of panic, especially in cross-country.

I kept running around while I watched kids race and in between, and I think ended up with around 18 miles or so.

12 total. Matthew did a mile time trial on the track. Joseph was the pacer. I followed as I was not confident in my ability to pace Matthew or even keep up. Matthew ran a PR of 5:48.2. Splits 86,91,87,82. He dropped me in the last 50 meters of the kick.

Jacob did a 5 K fartlek on the track 400 fast 100 slow in 18:18. Splits were more or less like last time except there was no panic 88 lap.

14 total. Paced Matthew in a 3 mile tempo (18:30) along with Joseph and William. William sped up in the last mile and ran about 18:10. Joseph pulled ahead of us a bit with half a mile to go, and then kicked the last quarter in 60, and got 17:52. Jacob ran 2 miles in 10:21 (5:05, 5:16) starting a minute behind us, then waited for us to catch up, and ran 0.75 with us, and then kicked in 64. He is slowly starting to climb out of his low turnover hole.

Benjamin did a 5 K fartlek on the road in 16:47 going by his GPS watch.

Earn Your Turkey (3.95 miles), 24:20, 32nd overall, 1st in 50-54.

I paced myself probably the best ever. But I am getting a bit older and a bit slower. Still holding it together enough to run almost 6:00 pace for 4 miles at altitude. Something to be thankful about on the Thanksgiving Day.

Kids:

Jacob 21:54, 1st in 15-19, 15th overall, course PR
Joseph 22:38, 3rd in 15-19, 22nd overall
William 25:05, 5th in 15-19, 40th overall, course PR
Bonnie 26:47 if I remember right
Nate 29:18 if I remember right
Stephen 30:12, 4th in 1-14, 85th overall
Jenny 31:18
Julia 32:29, 2nd in 20-24

1 mile (really 0.97):

Matthew 5:37 (1st in 9-10)
Mary 6:54 (1st in 9-10)

800 meters (not sure if it is really 800 meters as the kids drift forward at the start and are not pushed back to the actual starting line):

Bella 3:18 2nd in 7-8
Leigha 4:22 2nd in 5-6

Sarah had some issues with dizziness, ran a mile, then tried to walk and run, did not want to be on the course of that long as she thought she would miss the kids races, and stopped early.

As a result we got 4 turkeys.

Benjamin did a 5 K time trial on a hilly course in Austin in 15:59.
