Long-Term Running Goals:
I would like to keep running ultras into my 60s.
Details at: http://www.crockettclan.org/ultras/ultracrockett.pdf Married with six kids and six grandchildren. Started running at the age of 46 in 2004. My first race since Junior High days was a 50K. I skipped the shorter road stuff and went straight to ultramarathons. I started as a back-of-the packer, but have progressed to a top-10-percent ultra finisher. Wish I would have started running at a much earlier age. Have had several articles published in national running magazines. Check out my running adventure blog at www.crockettclan.org/blog
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.
