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.

1.5 mile jog, then 1.5 walk down through Confluence Park and back up past Farmer's. I did this in the afternoon so it was still really hot (102), which just drained me.  My form is still terrible, and the foot is giving me issues still, not so much the ankle but more the plantar fiscia. After my run we went to Jarren's cross country race.  He did great tonight, took 1st place in 8:59 for 1.5 miles. The last two meets he has finished 2nd, so he was excited to win this evening, even though it caused some hurt feelings with his teammate that is usually first. I tried talking with the kid and telling him to not be upset with second place.  We can learn a lot from not always finishing first. Later this evening Sunny and I walked 1 mile.
