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.

Turkey Trot on Thursday! Should be fun!

Thanksgiving tradition. I ran it as a tempo run this year since I'm just easing back into consistent training. I have run with my BIL, Brady the last few years. This year Teren and Cole joined us.

This course is freaking hard. It's very hilly. I forgot how tough it was until about 400 meters in. I started kind of slowly and worked to pick people off throughout the race. My goal was under 19 minutes. I snuck under with an 18:48. I was pleased until I found out that I got smoked by two minutes by Grayson Murphy. (She just placed 8th at the NCAA's.) But, decent effort.

Teren took second. Cole won his age group and ran a two minute pr. His cross country training is paying off.We all won a Costco pumpkin pie . . .sooooo much pie.

4mile cooldown with Bill Cobler.

Yay! First time I have felt good on a longer run in awhile. I'm happy with the last few weeks of building. I'm happy to hit 60 this week. I'm headed in the right direction.
