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.

I started with a half mile warm up just around. It was freezing by the way! I ran 3 miles in 23mins flat. A little under seven min mile average not bad. I know my first mile was 8mins flat then the next two were faster but dont have the splits on those.

I went on a run with one of my old high school teammates, Quinton Peterson. We just talked the whole time and went on a fun run kinda. I am sooooo out of shape :( but we got 4.02 miles in 34:47 which is an 8:39 pace pretty slow. I was dying and I think he was too. Miles were 7:38, 8:23, 9:06, 8:55, and the last little bit in 45secs.

Pretty tired from yesterday, this is my first back to back days in 4 months!!!!! So yes I suck. The weather is really warming up though which should make it easier to make myself run. I ran by myself, I just went out for an easy 20 mins but ended up getting back to my house in 19:20 for a total of 2.72 miles. Average pace of 7:07. My miles were 6:57, 7:21, and the last .72 in 5:01 which is 6:58 pace. Really tight, felt good to come back and stretch it all out. Been emailing back and forth with the BYUHawaii Coach and the Lewis Clark State College Coach about running for them when I get back from my mission. Oh yeah Ive been called to serve in the Argentina Buenos Aires West Mission! I leave to the MTC July 1st!! Dixie State College cut there mens and womens cross country teams due to "budget cuts" so now I don't have a team to come back to when I get back in two years. Right now Im really considering Lewis Clark, very strong team and awesome coach.... but we'll see????
