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.

Busy day.. Started with getting concrete poured for the bball pad (looks real nice 28 x 32)  then Jordan went in for a gum graft and wisdom teeth taken out (not fun).  Of course the day I do concrete we get the only hard rain we've had in months.  Finally tonight I got out and did 9 miles easy over 600 North to Valley Academy and then down to Wendy's and back on 400 South.

16 miles down the marathon course with Mike and Bill.  We started at the start line and I felt pretty good until about a mile from Veyo, when I needed a bathroom stop bad.  Made it to Veyo and stopped, then took it easy up Veyo hill.  I really struggled the second part of the run today, we finished at the entrance to Snow Canyon State Park.  Today was not one of my better runs, but still good to get out and get the miles in.  This was my highest mileage week since 2011.

I did another 2 miles this evening to make it 60 miles for the week.
