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.

 3 miles (again) :(

I ran 3 again today and not too happy about it.  I was hoping to fun 4 but didn't happen. Note to self, don't eat a whopper, fries, drink a coke and run in the middle of the afternoon when it is really hot.....bad gut ache and way too hot.  

My shin was kind of hurting as well. I know I set myself up for a bad run with the food and time of day, but my shin is kind of upsetting me.  I am hoping that my leg is just weak and needs to get back into the feel of running....I don't know.  What ever makes me feel better right. :{
