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.

9 mile run with Bill, Mike, and Scott from turn off to Gunlock back to Mike's house.  I felt pretty good on the run. Spent most of the run with Bill, we walked up most of the hills, but besides that the pace was ok.

Not much time tonight, started another Driver's Ed class.  Rode bike for 20 minutes.  I'm feeling old, bought some arthritis pills, see if they help relieve any of the pain I'm feeling in my knees and joints.
