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.

Ran the 10 Memorial Run in AF this morning and really enjoyed it!

Didn't sleep well the night before listening to all the rain and wondering if it was going to be raining in the morning.  Normally I wouldn't worry so much but I was bringing along my 3 older kids to run the mile run and didn't want them to be cold.  Luckily the rain stopped and the kids had a blast.

I really pushed myself on the run 1, because I wanted to see my kids run and 2,  I wanted to see my kids run :).

My first 2 miles were 9:00 and could really feel it. I was kind of tired buy couldn't get myself to slow down. My 3rd mile was 9:40 and then I hit some down hill and pushed myself.  I kept my miles between 9 and 10 min and felt good.  My last mile was 8:30  and as I was coming into the finish I was able to see my kids take off for their race.  That was really fun! I finished and got to see all my runners finish and that was the best!!

Ran my fastest race, but not sure I could pull off that pace for a whole half marathon!

My shins are really sore along with my ankles. I get the shins, but the ankles confuse me. They feel really tights.

Next race is the Hersey 5k and then the Timp Half Marathon.
