Married for 44 years to a wonderful and supportive wife. She's run 2 marathons herself in our earlier years so that helps. 4 boys, all married, and 10 grandchildren. 2 sons are runners. I celebrated 39 years of running madness, insanity, or at least OCD, on August 23rd, 2021.
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.
10 miles at 9:12 A.P. on loop to Droubay and 1000 N. with Tina plus 2nd loop to Coleman and SR36 and back home. Light snow the last 4 miles. We ended up with about 3 inches and icy roads by the afternoon.
