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.

I've been off the radar for awhile now.  I kind of lost interest in blogging every mile or workout that I do.  I know, Shame on me. 

To make a long story short, I'm fit.  I've been doing a lot of cross fit training, a few triathlons here and there and a few races.  I haven't really averaged more then 30 miles a week for a couple years now.

I spend a lot of time lifting weights, do cross fit training, punching the heavy bag and running with my daughter and a little with my wife.

I don't know what the running future holds for me.  I'm kind of satisfied with my PR's and not really in the mood to go long distance like I did for so many years. 

I'm just happy staying in shape, running with my family and not feeling guilty for not running 15 miles everyday like I used to feel for so long. 

I'm sure I'll get the bug back.  It's been a couple years sense my last marathon.  Who knows, I'll probably be running one again in no time.
