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 have not been able to run for about a week, I had the opportunity to go on a stake trek for four days last week. It was a wonderful the built my testimony and had great spiritual experiences.

So today's run I did not feel 100 percent, not sure if the legs were tired from the 28 mile trek of last week or because I missed a week of running. Maybe both, I will work back into my routine slowly.

I did feel a little better on my run today, the old guys legs did'nt seem as whacked out. I ran out past mini gu corner today and back home, kept the pace on the easy. I will do that this week and work my way back slowly after a week off. St. George Marathon is coming quickly time to go through the next training rotation..

Nice long run today, made it out the door at 5am and the head lamp lighting my path it was a nice morning. I was by my onesie today my son was out of town, missed you Bryan. I did the usual route of up over Harry's and then up to the round a bout over to mt. Loafer road down to canal road. From there headed back to gu corner and reduced. It was muggy this m,owning need to refill my bottle with some sport drink before making a golf course loop to home.

Great run, great morning and St. George Marathon is about six weeks away.

Nice long run this morning, ran with my son Bryan which made even more enjoyable. My legs did real well today, finally I think the Wednesday hill repeats are starting to take a positive affect.

I miss seeing my Brother Clay out on Saturday long runs, he has been fighting an injury for a while now. I hope and pray that he will get better soon and still be able to make a showing at St. George in October. Hang in their Bro. I love for your example of courage and patience.

Nice extended golf course loop today, the old leg did feel I a bit on the whack side the first few miles. But then they decided to want to go and ended being a really great run.

Nice long run this morning with my son Bryan, we headed out up over Harry's hill, then up to the round about over the mt. Loafer road down to canal road. From there we headed back to gu corner and did a golf course loop to home. I did not feel as good this long as last weeks, kinda of on the tired side I quests. It was a very warm morning and a bit on the muggy Sid perhaps that had something to do with my energy levels. Still a freat run.
