In my freshmen year, I lettered in both track and cross country. I also got the Rookie of the Year Award in cross country, and the Freshmen of the Year Award in track. At regions for XC I was 7th. At state I was 65th. In track at regions I placed 3rd in the mile and 2nd in the 2 mile. At state I was 17th in the mile and 13th in the 2 mile.

Sophomore year I was a cross country captain and I lettered again. I was 3rd at regions and 12th at state. At track regions I was 3rd in the mile and the 2 mile. I also anchored the winning medley relay team.

Junior year I got a stress fracture about a month before the cross country season started, but made a great comeback with a 2nd place finish at regions.  At state I placed 6th, and I broke 19 minutes for the second time in my racing history.  Team captain again. In track I shattered my old PRs and was doing well until I got a stress reaction.  After 3 weeks off I built my strength back up and performed well at state, earning 4th in the 1600 and 5th in the 3200.  After that, I was invited to the Great Southwest Track Meet in Albuquerque, where I took 5th.

My senior year in cross country I was a captain again, this time with Amanda and Natalie.  This season I was injury free so I got to run competitively at invites.  At state I took 3rd.  At Footlocker Western Regionals I outkicked a girl on the track to finish 10th, which qualified me for nationals the next weekend.  I beat both of the girls who had beat me at state in that race.  At nationals I took 22nd and beat 6 of the girls who had beat me at regionals.  Going into the outdoor season the first Invitational I attended was the Davis Super Meet where I qualified for state in the 1600 and the 3200, and I broke the meet record for the 3200 in an 11:01.29, the previous record was an 11:17.  I had a strong finish to my senior season and finally claimed a state title.  I ran the fastest 1600 and 3200 at state for any division, claiming the double crown in those events, and earning the athlete of the year award :)

Now in college, I run for the University of Utah.  I lettered my freshman season of cross country, and made it to regionals in the 5k in track.

Sophomore year I improved in cross country.  In track I raced the 1500, 5k, 800, 10k, and the mile of the DMR before repeating the 5k at conference and then the 10k at regionals.  Placed 28th behind a lot of seniors... so nationals next year!! 


Short-Term Running Goals:

 Run a 5k in under 18 minutes

Win state in the 1600 and 3200

Place in the top 5 at state in the 1600

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.

Speedwork today.  I started with a mile warmup and then a mimle of speed changes.  Then we did four 400s with 90 seconds recovery.  I hit 1:20 for the first three and about a 1:24 on the fourth.  Then we took a lap recovery and did a 200.  I hit 35, and then did 200 recovery.  That was the workout, but I didn't want to be finished yet so I did an 800.  I got a 2:50, even splits.  Then I did a mile cooldown and worked on handoffs for the medley relay.

Race: Region 6 Track Meet (1 Miles) 00:05:52, Place overall: 3, Place in age division: 1
Total Distance

I began with a mile warmup and a mile of speedchanges.  Then I changed shoes and did some strides and a few skips and high knees and stretches.  When the race began I was in the leading pack of 4.  One of the girls dropped off, and then I was left following Kate and Emma.  I tried to stay with them but they were too fast.  Still, I was able to put distance between me and the runner behind me.  I didn't have much of a kick at the end, probably because there wasn't anyone around me.  Still, I had a good race and I qualified for state :)  Afterwards I did about a half mile cooldown in my trainers. 

For the medley relay I did about 2 laps warmup and 2 laps speedchanges.  Then I shanged shoes and did a few more drills and worked on handoffs quickly.  I was excited for the medley today, after my kick last week.  This time I had more of a head start on the other teams.  We were in lane 5, last ranked of the teams in the region.  Right from the start our team was the leader.  We had several meters lead by the time our 400 runner left.  And she kept her lead, and I was very extied when I got the baton.  I ran on my toes, and pushed the whole time.  Our team was first, so we qualified for state =D  I don't know what the time was, or what my split was (but I think I might have reached a new PR).

When I returned home I took my ipod and went for about a mile cooldown run in my neighborhood.

I began with a warmup with Amanda.  We did a mile warmup and a mile of speedchanges.  Then we changed shoes and went over to the starting line.  I did a few drills and stretches, like yesterday, and then we got on the line.  I was ranked third, behind Kate and Emma.  At the beginning I was in a pack with them and Bre.  Kate led, Emma drafted behind her, and I drafted behind her.  On the third lap I ran around Emma and ran next to Kate.  By the fourth lap I didn't like the drafting pace and decided to try and get around it.  It was too early for this in the race, however, and at that point the pack broke and Emma and Kate got quite far ahead of me.  I still finished in third though, so I qualified for state.  Bre and Amanda did also, so I'm very excited that we will all be running there together.  Afterwards I did a mile cooldown with Amanda.

And oh yeah, our girls team won regions =D

Today we each got to choose our run.  We were supposed to do 5 miles.  I ran to Shriner's and back, adn then did a few laps on the track.  I felt relaxed and like I was going fast... though I didn't bring my watch.

I did a speedworkout this morning. I began with a mile warmup from my house to the track. Then I did a mmile of speedchanges. I did four 800s. I wasn't hitting my best times today, but they were 3:01, 3:06, 3:08, and 3:09. I wasn't as mentally focused, probably because I was by myself. I did a lap recovery after each, and for my cooldown ran back home.
