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.

9 miles with Bill and Scott out to Sandhollow to watch the Ironman swim.  I felt pretty good coming back from the dam.  Came home then did a 3 mile loop down through Pah Tempe.  Decided to do another 2 miles when I saw Ben Ashcraft running up the Twist.

Did a 1 mile warm-up to the start line with Cody, Art, and Scott.  A little chilly, but no rain.

Well, that didn't last long just as soon as I took off my warm-ups and put all my clothes in my drop bag the rain began and didn't let up the entire race.  At some points it was really heavy and the temps were also some of the coldest I've raced in.  However, even though I couldn't feel my legs for half of the race I still managed a decent time.  I was just frustrated that I never felt like I got into a rhythm or that I was ever really racing.  I just felt like I was going through the motions.  This was a lot better race than two weeks ago at Southern Utah Half.

Sunny dropped me off on Washington Parkway and then I ran down through Hell's Canyon and over to Sullivan Park, then along the bike path and back up to Biolife. The first part of the run I ran a little faster, then slowed down climbing the hills.

Basketball this morning and the I ran up Pah Tempe Canyon 3 miles to the large swimming hole.  I took a nice dip in the river for about 10 minutes.  The water is still pretty cold.  I then continued on the other side of the river up to the La Verkin Twist and then down on the trail.
