"Engaging in a little suffering — however self-imposed, arbitrary and contrived — before breakfast each morning tends to demand some humility and injects some marked relief into the rest of the day, making things sharper, more inspired, more immediately aware of the powerful presence of being. And that seems really worthwhile." A. Krupicka

 

"I cruised down hills, churned up hills, and floated over the asphalt, existing in a world that seemed to lack the confinements of such ubiquitous rivets as time, obligation, or pain. I knew then that this was destined to be one of those serendipitous runs for which so many of 
us strive yet so rarely achieve." J. Nevels

 

 

 

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.

Spent the past weekend at the Founders Title Folk and Bluegrass Festival. No running. Folk and bluegrass people like to stay up all night and jam. Serious sleep deprivation!

I just joined the blog today. I've been lurking around here for a couple of months and have gained a lot of inspiration/motivation from all the great runners here. So thanks and may you stay...forever young! So far I've run exclusively on trails and/or dirt roads. I'll have to face the roads eventually as winter draws near. Hopefully I'll be fast enough by then to outrun the mad person behind the wheel! My pace has probably not been faster than 10mpm. I've ordered a Garmin gps watch, should have it within a week, then I can more accurately log my mileges/pace.
