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.

So, I went out the ladies this morning.  This is my first running experience with them since I quit running at the beginning of my pregnancy last year.  It was great!  I had to take a few walking breaks, but did an okay job of staying with them.  They are a wonderful bunch of ladies and were so nice to welcome me back.  I think I'm going to be a little sore from the run, but it will definitely be a "good hurt".

Because of the yucky weather/inversion we decided to run up at the Oval this morning.  It was a busy place.  I guess the speed skating team was doing some sort of time trial so lots of people were there early to watch.  We were glad it gave us something to talk about and to distract me from my heavy breathing.  It felt soooooo good to be back running.  My legs have felt it throughout the day, but it's so nice to be getting back on track.
