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.

Pushed Halen around the DC loop in the Baby jogger. I was worried about my legs falling apart and the hip hurting and I was also stressed about Halen getting sick of it or needing food. Didn't want it to turn into a scream fest with like 3 miles to go. But it all went great. Legs really felt pretty good and Halen slept the last 9.8 miles. 7:20 avg.

Middle B-hills/ Secret St/ LV with a little extra over to a potty stop. Hip hurt yesterday afternoon and through the night into the morning. It was tight and achy into about .5 miles of the run then I didn't feel it anymore. So good and bad I guess. Bad news is it isn't totally caused from biking as I havent been on a cycle for days. But it coud be irritated by heavy lifting and I've had a few days over the weekend where I worked on some yard project and could have set something off.

Other than the hip the run was good. Out about 20 min's before daybreak in a long sleeve and gloves but after a couple miles I had to pull the sleeves up on the shirt. Over night low of 44 F. Myler and I slept out in the tent last night and I was hot... Super warm bag that I had to unzip to cool off so I could even try and sleep.

4.4 miles tonight. Ran over to the Region HS cross country meet at B-hills park. It's 2.0 miles from my house directly over there. Then I did .4 running around while watching. Hip hurt crazy bad on the way back home. Ugh... the saga rolls on.

Big boys run here at the house at 5:15 a.m. No one really wanted to do 10 so we cut it short and only did 8. B-ills/ Secret St/ Little Valley loop. Nice and crisp and good company. EZ pace.

0 miles or anything else. Hip was hurting and I had no drive to fight it today.

Trail run from Steven's house. Looped up and hit the Zen trail and that whole area. Started in the dark up some rocky canyon... that was fun and lucky we didn't loose Logan who couldn't see. A coyote would have loved to chew on his quads or butt... that's not a fat joke. Hip was achy but runnable throughout. Lovely morning with the lads.

Road both my new bikes today. 24.4 miles on the Tarmac and then around 4 short miles on the Venge. Just wanted to test them out a little after putting them together late last night. I actually planned on doing two loops out to the airport one on each bike... but I'm out of shape. Haven't ridden since LotoJa and the legs are gone. Holy cow was I struggling to keep the wheels rolling on the way back in. Guess I'll have to get back in shape after Thanksgiving once my wife finally gets done with all her tirps and work stuff.
