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.

Started at Big Water lower parking lot and ran up to Dog Lake, then looped to Desolation Lake then back along the Great Western trail.  This is a great loop which I have done one time before and was thinking it was only 9.5 miles.  Psych...it was 12.5.  I'm undertrained to push this but was beautiful scenery and bonus was no mountain bikes as it is odd number day.  Lots of hikers to Dog lake but no one the middle 8 miles except one lone geezer mountain runner who looked fresh as a daisy and would kick my trash.

Pavement miles on an old sweetie from my past to Cottonwood Offices and back.  Sore quads and butt from trail run two days ago.  Got to get back in some shape.
