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.

Basketball this morning, hoping for a few miles tonight.  PF started hurting again, it has been feeling better maybe due to the fact I didn't run much last week.

Played basketball this morning.

Found out this afternoon that Sunny lost the baby.  This has hit me pretty hard as I was really excited to be having a girl.  Anyway, they won't be able to get us in to the hospital until next week.

I should have gone for a run, but just didn't feel up to it.  Spent most of the day with Sunny, I was able to get the Christmas lights put up outside so that was nice.

It was nice Bill and Brenda brought over pizza which was very kind.

Steve and Kendra came over this evening and brought a little gift for Sunny from Kendra and Ally Holt.

We also got some flowers from Mike and Colleen.

We have so many great friends! Especially in our little running group.

Ran over by Howards, then up the La Verkin Overlook Trail.  Got up to the top and then stretched.  Man, I was feeling tight, hips, back, legs.  I felt a little better coming back down.  Total distance was 6 miles, with the first 2 really tough climbing.  I'm really feeling fat and out of shape right now, probably because I am.

Basketball this morning.  My thumb is still really jacked up from jamming it a few weeks ago.  So today I just ran up and down the court, caught the ball with one hand and didn't shoot much.

Ran over to 300 West then down to Pah Tempe and back home. 4.34, then did another .66 on the treadmill to make it an even 5.

Basketball for 2 hours this morning. Ran down through the Confluence this afternoon.  It was pretty interesting to see where the river had been running out of its normal course.  There were lots of downed trees and the grass was all matted down where water had been running over the top of it.

Merry Christmas to all.  I think this is the first time I've ever ran on Christmas Day.  I know this was the first time we've ever done Christmas morning with just our little family.  Usually we are either at the cabin in Pine Valley or in Colorado.  However, we didn't go up to Pine Valley this year instead my inlaws came over this morning to watch the kids open presents. 

Anyway on to the run.  I did Nephi's Twist, but ran it in reverse from what I normally do.  So I went up the La Verkin Twist first, then down Nephi's trails.  I think I like running it the other way better.

I'm still feeling pretty sore, but I do think I'm making some progress. I managed over 30 miles this week, so that is better than what it has been the last several weeks.

Ran over past the Chevron in Hurricane then down to 400 South and back home.  It was raining pretty good and I got soaking wet, but felt good to get out and run.  Still dealing with PF issues.  I really haven't liked the Brooks Launch shoes.

3 miles on the dreadmill in the garage.  I watched an episode of Man vs. Wild which made the time go by fast.  I used Jordan's skullcandy earbuds, I really need to get a pair of those.  I couldn't even hear the sqeaky treadmill which was nice.
