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.

1 mile on the treadmill in 15:00 minutes, then did 10 machines 2 x12 reps. Then ran from the gym to the 13th tee box, then back. 2 miles in 28:00 minutes. I was able to jog a little, but still lots of stiffness in the ankle, also it was 110 degrees outside so that made it more difficult.

Nothing this evening.  I did driver's ed, then we went with Jansen as he was set apart as a full time missionary.  President Micah Gubler gave him a very nice blessing, and Elder Ence is excited to get started.  He will be doing a six week at home MTC and then will either go straight to Norway or if he is waiting for his visa he will go to San Jose California.
