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.

Did the Jolley's Loop in 17:39 (9:21 avg) I think the last time I ran this loop for time the average was like 11:30, so there is some improvement happening.

I rode the exercise bike today, my legs and back have been bothering me quite a bit lately. Anyway did 37 minutes, 9 miles, later this evening I did a 1 mile walk.  Jarren had a meet today over in St. George, it was super hot, but he ran really well, took 3rd overall, some of the other schools didn't run their top guys, but it was still a really good effort by Jarren.

40 minutes (9 miles) on the exercise bike, then a 2 mile walk with Sunny.  My legs are feeling pretty sore today, and I'm having more ankle pain so I might take it a little easier this week.
