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.

Husband had to work, so I was back on the treadmill with the kiddos this morning.  The kids did great and I actually didn't mind the treadmill so bad.  My left knee is finally feeling better after having 4 days of NO running.  Only 3 weeks left until Hobblecreek, can't wait for it to get here!

On the treadmill again today.  Baby slept and the twins played great - so nice!!  I got really hot during the first mile and then just watched the dots circle on the screen - not much fun!

Woke up at 5:15 this morning to hear rain drops on my window and lots of wind.  Decided then to turn my alarm off and just run on the treadmill.  Ready for a good, long run outside on Saturday.

I was super excited to get back out on the streets this morning.  I was a little nervous because I knew this was going to be my longest run before the race in 2 weeks.  I met Laurie at the corner and we started out.  She keep such a nice steady pace and I love that.  We ran into a couple of dead ends and had to run on a dirt road for just a bit, but really liked the route.  The weather was perfect!!  I dropped her off at 9 miles and then added on a little so that I can feel a little more confident for the race.  I had forgotten how nice it is to sometimes run alone on road.  I enjoyed letting my mind wonder and really ponder some things in my life right now.  At one point around mile 10 I think I kind of hit that runner's high because mentally and physically I felt awesome.  Finished in 2:02.
