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.

3.12 in 32:04 @ 10:17 pace.  40th birthday run, struggled due to aggressive pacing, not drinking enough before, good weight loss the last couple of days, and not getting out the door before the sun.  I beat my time from yesterday, but had three 5 second walks the last mile.

Saw lots of wildlife including, random lizards, at least one very large whiptail, a coachwhip speeding across the road, a dead diamondback, and a cottontail that sat still as I ran right next to it.

I am going out to eat my free meals, hoping that doesn't sabotage my recent weight loss achievments.

Seattle neighborhood run. Very hilly. It is a very runner/biker friendly city. Paved sidewalks and the stick bicycle people designating bike lanes model good behavior by wearing helmets.
