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.

I went to Cadence Running. Co. this evening to help host another Ragnar 101 clinic.  They have group runs every Tuesday, so it was nice of them to let us come.  I didn't feel like I was ready to run the full 3 miles that they do.  It was real hot, and I've mostly been doing pool running.  I honestly don't know if that's been helping at all, but it must be doing something.  It's better than nothing I keep telling myself.

I got up earlier than normal, so I was determined to get a real run in today.  I went outside ready to run a mile and a half.  It was a couple of minutes before 7am, but it felt like an oven already.  It was 92 in the shade.  But I should be able to do a mile and a half.  So I turned on my Runkeeper and I got an alert that today is Global 5K Day.  (I capitalized that as if it's a real thing.)  So, anyway, yeah, I had to do at least a 5K.  I slogged my way through it and I'm happy to say that I beat 15,065 people.  (You don't need to know how many people beat me.  Go away now.)
