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.

No running today.  I was tired early - and had planned to run later in the day - but the weather got a bit ugly - and I did not feel like a treadmill run.  Decided to take a day off.

PM - 5.25 miles at lunchtime around the neighborhoods near my office in Sandy Springs. Had to turn around on one street which was blocked by a fallen tree and there was a police car stationed in front of it.  Lots of debris and downed trees and branches - but nothing too major to report.

AM - easy run with Finn before work - just under 3 miles.  Foot is achy.

PM - lunchtime - a little over 3 miles - quick after a 1 mile warm up.   Turned my ankle/foot on some Irma debris on the sidewalk - probably a pine cone (grrr).  Same foot that was achy this morning.

PM - I ran well today.  Start off planning to run easy if the foot hurt or if I did not feel great - but it all worked out and I ran the last 5 of the 7 total miles at a tempo pace on a hilly course.  Good effort.
