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.

Ran over to Sky Mountain tee box #13 5 miles in 40:55, coming back was quite a bit slower.  I really struggled, but still glad I forced myself to run 10 today.  It was pretty hot out today 85.  Today Joslin is 6 months, hard to believe how fast time goes by.  I still am carrying around too much weight, need to run more and clean up the diet.

A decent 8 miles this morning.  I went over and watched Jordan's meet at Dixie, then did a loop down to the Dixie Center and around on the bike path through Bloomington Hills then back to Dixie High School up River Road and back on 700 South.  It was pretty warm by the time I got running.

Not the greatest run/workout but at least it was something. I ran out to Walmart along 600 North.  Did the first 5 slow to #13 tee box, got some water then proceeded to do 4 x 1000m, these were a lot slower than when I do them at the cow field

Ran 10 miles from the Dixie Center.  Did the first 4 with James Barnes, Clyde, Steve, and Bill.  Then did the last 6 with just Bill.  I was only going to do 6 but managed to do 10.  Time for me to get some new shoes, feet were bothering me during the run.  Also had some weird hip pain.

Slept in and then did an easy 6 over to Hurricane City Center and back home.  I got over to the city center and talked to Ken Carlson for a bit as he was still timing the Hurricane Half Race.  Legs still feeling tired, but overall this was an ok week.
