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.

AM - in San Antonio for a business conference - random run out and back on what turned  out to be a bit of a sketchy area - hot and humid even before sunrise.  Not enjoyable.  Oh well.

AM - a little over 7.5 miles mostly along the river walk in San Antonio.  Really buggy with swarms of gnats - and as a result a bunch of bats.  Spent a fair amount of time dealing with avoiding swallowing and inhaling the gnats.  Slow but decent run.

AM - 5 miles with Finn and Dan in the neighborhood.  He's just back from vacation in the Greek Isles - sounded amazing.

AM - foot started feeling a little injury-like after yesterday’s easy double.  So I just did 3 easy miles with Finn and Dan.  Heading to Clearwater later today.

AM - staying on Clearwater Beach - here for a business luncheon - retirement for one of my paralegals and then my 35th class reunion this evening.  You know you are old when ...  Anyway - I ran on the beach in the old Vibram shoes.  Enjoyed it.  Easy effort.  Concerned about the left foot at times and at other times not at all.   Many years of running and racing on these sands.  Evidently the Dunedin pass on the north end no longer exists because my gps tells me I ran over it on to Caledesi Island but I never saw it.
