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.

No run I was a bum on the 4th of July and just hung out with family, we did go down and swim at the river, which required a little bit of exercise getting down there, swimming, and then climbing back up the hill.

Ran 3.5 miles this morning around La Verkin.

Went to the club run this evening.  Lots of people there and pretty hot temps.  We ran the loop in reverse.  I did fine the first two miles, then stopped for water and slowed down a bit.  I stopped a second time at La Quinta for water then took it easy and cut back at the bridge.  The run was pretty good just over 7 minute pace and around 5.5 miles I stopped my watch a few times and forgot to restart, so not sure on the exact mileage.

I woke up not feeling too good and with no motivation to run, so I didn't.  I spent most of the day picking apricots, shoveling dirt, and staining the swing set.
