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.

5 miles with Lily.  Then 10 x 1 minute on/off for three more.  Not bad for absolutely no motivation this morning

20 degree temperature swing made for a nice run this morning. I love any opportunity to run in shorts in October.

Fall break means a later morning run.  I threw down four tempo miles.  I think a little fitness is coming back with a bit more consistency. But, these next two weeks are going to be exhausting with long rehearsal nights, opening next week, and two show day next Saturday.  After that things mellow a bit. And, after we close Addams Family, I am taking a Theatre break until after Christmas when I start rehearsals for a dinner theater show.

7:28, 6:59, 7:03, 6:46, 6:30, 6:17, 6:14, 6:04 (5 minute cooldown)

Had 9:00 rehearsal moved to 11.  That meant I got to run later.  I'm glad. I'm so tired.  Five with Devra, picked up Lily and ran 5 more.

The down week that fell apart.  Opening a show is exhausting.  Murray Park run with Tee and Devra
