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.

Atlanta Track Club - Thanksgiving Day 5k.   Normally we have a bunch of friends and family visiting us for the holiday and we “run” this event as a group.  This year it was just two of my girls and Riley’s boyfriend- so I decided to give a solo effort for a change today.   Hilly course had me cautious early-on but I opened up a bit in the last mile.  7:02, 7:07 and 6:42 with the last .1 at sub 6 pace.  Great weather.   Oddly, I finished 1st in the Grand Master category.  

Happy Thanksgiving!

AM - 5 miles easy in Gainesville- came down last night for the game today; Delaney is a senior and so this was our last opportunity to catch a game with her before she graduates in the Spring.  Ran around campus before sunrise - pleasant weather.
