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.

AM - 11 miles. Zion Pa'rus trail and some meandering in Springdale (4 w/ Andrea).

Started in Zion and finished the day at Bryce Canyon. The weather was even warmer than yesterday. Certainly a well-timed trip!

AM - 8 miles. Bryce Canyon Rim Trail (4 w/ Andrea) and then back to Ruby's. This is one of my all-time favorite runs.

We did a hike into the amphitheatre... like I said on Saturday, its so cool to see someone's initial reaction when they get immersed in the Bryce Canyon fantasyland.

PM - 4 miles. Had to stretch the legs out after driving back to SLC.

Race: Saltair 5K (3.06 Miles) 00:15:23, Place overall: 1
Running MilesSwimming YardsBike Miles

AM - 6 miles. Saltair 5K - 15:23 (4:57, 5:07, 5:01, 0:17). 

I was dragging from a (mentally) tiring week at work, so I was thinking I'd shoot for 5:10-5:15 pace. But I ended up feeling alright and I'm pleased that I can run ~5:00 pace on a solo effort. It would be interesting to see what I could do with someone challenging me (Andrea was 2nd place overall)... although on the flip side I'm not really motivated to push myself any harder at this point.

The course was a touch short (start/finish line was moved up a bit compared to the winter series, not sure why) but I would have been in the mid-15:30s, which I feel pretty good about. A few months ago my lungs almost exploded after running a 5:43 mile, so there's been some major improvement in health and fitness this fall!
