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.

AM-Easy 10 mile recovery run at 7-7:30/mi.  JRT out and back.  Just relaxed and enjoyed one heck of a beautiful morning and just overall an awesome day to turn 40.

 Hello masters division!

PM-4 miles TM @ 7-8/min pace after work tonight.   Had to cut short because of studying for school and putting kids to bed.  Priorities you know.  Man I'm feeling a little overwhelmed and tired tonight. 

On a side note I just got through reading the site front page and message board on Lets Run about a BYU team member being kicked off for violation of the honor code.   I have two words to say about what was said how it was put forward;   NO CLASS.

Welcome to old age! Hope to see you on the USATF circuit this year. I think I can get in at least 4 of their races this year.
