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.

A really nice run today!  Did 4 on the TM and tried to really push my speed.  It felt really good and I am happy with my run.  I wish I would have stopped talking sooner so I could have gotten 1 more mile in, but I love to talk to fun people!

Had a good run this morning.  It must be a Monday things, but every monday I have an angry tummy!!  I must be from all the "good food" i eat over the weekend.

 Having some arch pain in my left foot.  Hoping it just has to do with my foot issues from an injury years ago.

Hoping to log more miles this week!!
