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.

Solo run.  I don't run by myself very often lately. It was enjoyable.

Not great running last week.  Tech week is rough.  Lots of late hours.  We open Friday and then things lighten up for a hot second.  Running for sanity lately.  Morning run with Cole.  Tried to bond with him.  It didn't go well.  I will pay for a therapist one day.

Sooooo tired.  Such a long week leading into opening night for Shrek: The Musical on Friday.  I probably would have slept in, but Cole texted me during rehearsal to tell me he wanted to run before school.  How could I say no?  6 with Cole.  A couple more solo.
