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.

Not a very good start to May.  I didn't get go to basketball this morning and I didn't get out this afternoon.  I drove, then went over and worked some on the rental.  This week will be busy with two funerals and helping my parents with their rental property.  I just need to get up earlier and get some miles in.

I didn't run today.  No real reason.  I played in a golf tournament this morning, but just didn't feel very motivated this afternoon.
