Personal:

My name is Eugenio I was born near Rome, Italy, in 1972 and lived there for 29 years, then in 2001 I moved to Salt Lake City for work and for seven years and one month that was my home, since 2008 I am back to Italy. I started running in 2003 when I realized I could not ride my bike throughout the Utah winter.



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.

Easy miles to restart running after a rest day. I moved to the winter training area, boring as hell, but at least is well lit with wide roads and no traffic.

Fast workout night, 5X800 with 2:30 recovery jog.

I wanted to start on the faster side and see if and how long I would be able to keep it up. These were my splits 2:53, 2:53, 2:55, 2:58, 2:58. By the time I reached the fourth interval I was really working to maintain the same pace, I am just glad I stayed under the 3:00 mark for all five intervals.
