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.

Good luck tomorrow Bret. Although I can't believe the 100 miles on the bike won't take a little of the spring out of your legs. Feeling OK?

Exactly Rob - was kinda dragging the last couple of days. Plus it is warm - so I think I will just do whatever my body gives to me tomorrow. 5k is at 7 am and the 10 is at 8:45 - so will cruise the 5 with Delaney and earn my pumpkin pie in the 10 if I am feeling good.
How was the blizzard?

Maybe you'll surprise yourself. Sometimes there is no logic behind a great race.
The "blizzard" was a real let down. Only about 4 inches of snow. Cold though.Fifteen outside right now. Remember my former runner, Jon Kotter? I sent along a newspaper article about him last year - 28:50 10k guy. We are going for a 15 miler tomorrow morning.
