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.

This morning I ran from the Splash pad up to the Hurricane Canal trail and then out on that to Three Falls, then looped up around Angel Heights and then back to the Splash Pad, ended by soaking the legs for awhile in the water at the Splash Pad.  Good run, except I waited to long to get out and it was already getting warm outside.

Ran from the house to Grandpa's Pond, then back to Color Country Auto.  I felt pretty good the first 9 miles, the last 3 back up the hill on 600 North was a struggle.

3 mile La Verkin Loop and then 4 miles over in Hurricane from High School out on 920 West past the Intermediate School up into Angel Heights and then back to the school.  I'm still having neck issues, started last week, I slept wrong on my neck and it has been bothering me ever since.  Also still having left leg issues.

Ran with Bill from up Kolob Terrace Road back to my house 12 miles.  The first 6 miles were pretty good, the last 6 not so much.  I'm still having issues with my left knee.
