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.

8 miles this morning, felt pretty smooth and easy.  Pushed the pace the last two.  Man it's cold out here.  I'm going to SLC for the week for some training, so I wont update my blog for a few days.  I'm not to excited about running in the City, but I'll have to.

Eight miles on a tread mill, better then running in the cold I guess.

Back home from SLC.  Glad to be away from all that pollution.  It was nice to run out on the road today.  I ran just before sunset, and watched a awesome sunset as I ran.  I did another 8 miles.  I picked it up the last 2.5 miles, it felt really good.  My body was sick of running on the tread mill. 

The dog was glad to be out running too, he had to wait on the chain until I got home.  He missed three runs, I think he feels a little guilty.

8 miles after work today.  I pushed the last two.  I'm happy with this weeks running.  I'm not where I want to be on time, but I went out every day and ended up with 48 miles for the week.  I'm going to try and bump up the mileage 1 mile per day next week.

Hey, it looks like spell Check has been added!!  I couldn't get it to work when I clicked on it, I'm sure Sasha has it covered.  Nice updates, thanks!!
