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.

Feels really good to get up and run. Especially on Mondays. Went 5 today on the treadmill, and I haven't decided what to run this week. I have to get ready for the Spectrum 10k.  Good job to all you guys who ran the Del Sol relay. You guys did great!

5 this morning on the treadmill. Plan on going 6 tomorrow on the road, so that will be nice. Treadmill is getting boring, but it is very convenient!  Getting ready for the 10k this Saturday.

went outside and ran today! Ran down the dog pound road, pass Costco and Pine View High, then looped back down telegraph. Finished 6 at First Stop, so I got a drink, and had a leisurely walk home! It was nice to get outside. Hope I can do the 10k this weekend in under 1:10:00 is my goal.

I had a fun time running this race. I decided I like 10k's better than 5k's. My splits were 1, 10:00/2, 11:15/3,10:46/4,11:08/5,11:44/6,10:55.  I got under the time that I wanted, so that was good. Dave came back and ran with me from about 4.5 to the finish. That helped alot (mostly because I couldn't walk as much as I wanted to!) I felt really good, and the new songs I added to my ipod sure did help. I really liked the aid stations. The only way those could have been better is if they had a Diet Coke for me!

Could only do 3 this morning. My legs are tired and sore! Felt good to run and stretch my legs out. Back on schedule tomorrow with 5 every day.

1.2  Ran with Laney in the jogging stroller while other 2 girls were at school. It was fun and so nice outside, so I had to get out! Pushing that stroller is hard, so we only went a little over 1.  

3.8  Came back home and put Laney down for a nap, then finished up on the treadmill. It was nice to break it up a little. I do much better running in the afternoon instead of the early morning!

Got up early and did 5 on the treadmill. It felt pretty good. Dave is still really sick. Poor guy. It has been over a week.

only got 3 in since I had a visit from a friend, and having to go pick up Pyper from a friends house. Didn't have the desire to finish. I will do 5 tomorrow. Felt good though, and I think I am losing weight. Slowly. But, I am happy about that!
