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.

No going to the office today. My grandma is visiting for one day and I want to make the most of the time. Got up early and started to run outside, then got caught in the rain. Switched to the treadmill. (12 in 1:33:28)

Will write more later. This was a fun race and was exciting all the way through, even with poor weather for part of it! I felt like I did a pretty decent carb heavy diet starting Thursday at dinner time. Ate English muffins, oatmeal, bagels, etc. The last heavy protein I had was some baked chicken with spinach and mustard in a bagel sandwich. Seeing that the weather forecast for the race was bad, I went to Deseret Industries and got a cheap hoodie and gloves. Went to dinner with friends at Pig &a Jelly Jar, which was not a good place to go the night before a marathon. I just had a side waffle with fruit and syrup (and now I really want to go back to try the actual menu, because watching my wife eat chicken and biscuits was almost torture!). Waking up on race morning, I had a decent sized bowl of oatmeal with a large banana and peanut butter, almost exactly 3 hours before the race started. I was lucky that my bus was delayed for some reason and I didn't get off of it until 30 minutes before race start. It was sleeting at the start line and very foggy/cloudy (felt like western Oregon). I spent the next 25 minutes in line for a PoP. Changed out of my old shoes and socks with holes, drank a small electrolyte drink (Spark), and actually used the PoP as well. I wore my hoodie right up to the start line, then threw it next to a bunch of other abandoned clothes. Through most of the race I wore: baseball cap, tank, shorts, arm and leg sleeves, and gloves. That worked really well with the weather. I took off the gloves near the end. The weather got better later in the race, and the last 5 miles were really nice. I tried to keep my goal pace, but slowly lost it throughout the race. I definitely wasn't ready to break 3, but I have a little more time to prepare for my next marathon (Pocatello). It was a great race though. I pushed myself all the way through and had fun cheering others and doing my best. I also met Walter and learned how BQ certifications are done. Also, my 3 y/o was cheering "Go Daddy! Go Daddy!" at the end :-D
