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. 4 miles this evening on the dreadmill watched episode 7 of Hell on Wheels.  Actually the time went by pretty fast.  My left hip has really been a problem lately.

Yeah I got outside today for a 4 mile run.  I was able to fit in a run between a few meetings I had this afternoon and evening.  I ran over to the real estate sign and back, sidewalks still icy in a few spots.  Still having hip issues, which doesn't help the running situation.
