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 - 6.25 miles in Las Vegas - heading to Anaheim midday today for a different conference.   
 

PM - met up with Greg who coincidentally is at the same conference as me and used to live here.  So we went for a run at 3 pm with temps at 90 - but it was dry and we had a good quick-paced 5 miles.

AM - 8.5 miles with Greg in Anaheim- we ran around the Angels stadium and a trail along the Santa Ana river.   Nearly got lost - even though he used to live out here.  
 

PM - 3.75 miles around the perimeter of Disneyland - needed to de-stress a bit.  Busy day both at the conference and my day job.

AM - 8 miles with Greg on a different part of the bike trail.  

PM - flew up to San Francisco for my next conference - had an hour or so to kill, so did another 4.5 miles from my hotel down to the water and around the Giant's ballpark - fans lining up to head inside for a game tonight against the Padres.  If I did not already have a client dinner scheduled, I would have probably gone back and bought a ticket.

AM - back home with the guys on the trails with the dogs in the rain.  Everyone had early days so we kept it short.  Will get some additional running in later today hopefully.
