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.

I think this was the day we took the boys to the subdivision park. They went on the swings, played in the grass, and for a short time the sand.

A non-running, non-cycling ailment has me taking a few days off. Still extremely anxious.

PM: 2 hours fat bike on trails (25.7 miles). HR 161.

Felt better today. I think in addition to normal, everyday anxiety I was very dehydrated and that can really make symptoms worse. Had a decent time on the bike, but washed out on a corner and went into a small, but unyielding tree. My forearm took the brunt of it, which probably save my collarbone. Right should was very tight and I raised it up thinking I dislocated it. It kind of lightly ground/popped and felt better and I was able to continue riding for 90'. These trails are not at all technical. Just too much pressure in my tires and I tried to turn at the last minute. I had told Megan I was "just" going to Orion Oaks, so that I didn't crash two days before we take the boys on a road trip to Maine. I felt bad as she doesn't need anything else to worry about.

Next day: arm pretty sore but with full range of movement. I don't know how guys in their 50 and 60s do this crap. That hurt and it wasn't even that bad.

First day of travel to Maine. The boys did quite well. Stayed overnight in New York. The weather was good and we were able to let them out to play on a sheet in the grass.

Dad has deteriorated more than I thought. I was hoping to get some short runs in, but my mom is not able to handle the boys as well now that they are bigger and she is taking care of my dad. My niece Delia stays quite a bit and is a huge help.
