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.

Changed up my shoes and went back to my Asics Gel speedstar.

I bought them about a year ago and at the time was still having some soreness from my stress fracture when i ran in them so I stopped.

 Stared wearing them last week and am really enjoying them.  They really give my calves a good workout.

Had a great run out side!!

Planned to run outside this morning.  Woke up and saw the now and wanted to climb back into bed!!  Thanks goodness for friends  to run with!

Once outside it wasn't as bad as I thought it would be.  I should of worn goggles though.  The snow was getting in my eyes!  It didn't matter which direction I was running oit was always in my face.

Wet feet and not fun to have!!

 It was an awesome run!  Felt really good, but my right ankle and calf are kind of tight.  Will have to do a lot of stretching today.

10 Baby!!

 Had a great run this morning! Ran with my friend who is training for her first 5k so my first 3 were pretty slow but I really liked it.  Ran 5 with her and then 5 by myself.  I felt really good the whole time!!

My left ankle and arch is hurting though.  I think it might be my shoes.  I haven't run in them much and I don't think my feet are use to no support, but I really like running in them because they are sooo light.  I'll give it a little longer and if things don't improve I'll have to go back to my other shoes.

Fell really good about my race at the end of the month!  Can't wait!!

Ran the Thanksgiving Half Marathon on a very snowy cold morning.  

I woke up really early that morning and saw the snow and was very discouraged! I even thought about not running at all!

The one night we leave the car out and it snows!!  I went out and it looked one big marsh-mell
