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.

DC loop. Last week the trail was blocked over by the DC and they were doing some work on the trail. It was all finished today. The trail it's self is all done over there... the park andn restrooms are a different story- it'll be a while on that one. 

The run felt good. Better than any last week. I think the sickness is basically worked it's way out (crossing my fingers and toes). It's always nice to just be regular old healthy and not be bound by a bug.

Freeway loop. One lap on my 20 mile course. Hadn't ran this loop in a while and it was a good change up. Felt pretty good overall. Beautiful morning of 47 F. I had to take my gloves off after 2 miles.

Freeway loop again this morning. This time in reverse. It seems harder this direction and I'd hate to try it this way at tempo pace. With all the rollers on this loop they come at bad times and places going this direction. Run felt good... a little better than the day before. I picked it up for a couple miles but wasn't wearing a watch so I'm not sure how fast.

Out and back run into B-hills this afternoon. I just didn't feel like running this morning and Mik'L had to leave early so it got pushed back. I was waiting for a phone call so I took my phone with me. Thought it would be worse than it was- but packing it a long wasn't too bad. The run seemed to go by fast as I keep waiting for the phone to ring- the call didn't come until mile 8. It was someone who was coming to look at the car and then they still didn't show up. Anyways I'm tight in the hammies and a few other places.

Middle B-hills loop then extended around Little Valley once I got over here. Left hammy and knee or behind the knee or something is really tight. But I felt good once I got going and would have gone longer if I had time. Mik'L ran 8 miles this morning and was already running a little late getting to work.

I didn't know what time I'd be able to run or want to run today so I skipped running with the guys. However I woke at 6 a.m and couldn't sleep so was running by 6:20ish. Most likely should have just gone with them- but they were doing 20 and I'm not going longer until at least November 1. Anywho a lot of my run was in the darkness so it went by fast and temps were cool but I wished I'd wore a short sleeve rather than the long one. Felt pretty steady through about 11 miles but then started to feel wore out the last couple. Did the Stone Cliff/ DC loop extended around the park for a half marathon distance. Blah blah blah
