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.

Nice fartlek workout this morning, 10:5:3.5:3, those were the fast intervals. The pace was right around 6 minutes, although I did have some good sustained segments going under 6. Always good to remind myself that I can go fast.

It was really cool this morning, felt good to run in those lowish temperatures. It was a rough day tonight though, talked with Holly, thought everything was good, but she just said she was struggling with a lot of emotional challenges, and felt like she wasn't in a place where she could be in a relationship. I don't know, It's just weird, I don't know how to feel or how to react, but there's not much I can do.

Ran the little loop through westbrook village. I've thought of a way that it could be 3 miles, and I think it's about to become my favorite loop
