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.

4mi run followed by a 3mi dog walk.  If my dog was good at running I would take her, but she sprints and stops and likes to bite the leash.  If I get her tired and give her a stick to bite she can trot along for maybe a mile when its cool and 1/2mi when its hot.

Ran at a local mountain bike trail.  Felt pretty good & didn't walk at all, even on the steep climbs.  Only one stop to change shoes.  I wore my Brook Cascadias for the first loop and remembered why I removed them from my shoe list, the balls of my feet were burning 2 mi in.  After switching back to my favorite trail shoes, the run was much more plesant.
