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.

Rosstaphor wanted to hit some paved trail. We started at trailhead by the Post Office. Picked up George at the Dixie Center then ran parts of the Mayors Loop with extension into the Springs. Had some detours in the Springs then made it back on the trail and looped to the cars. Afterwards I drove George to his car at the Dixie Center. Then Metler ran by so we joined him and ran to his house. Then we cut across South Gate to get back. Great weather and everything felt relaxed. Ross is still keeping the pace under 8. 12.88 miles

More kids running fast on the track. I did 20 warm with Hunter (a new recruit). I think he wanted to try sprints but the S crew had taken off before he showed up. Hopefully he won't be scared off after one day. Then after watching the kids run the 800 did some cool with the boys. 7.13 miles

Ran from Sullivan and almost made it to Tonaquint park. It was a relaxed fun run with the girls. The time went by really fast. I may or may not have tried to instigate a fight between our girls and D-Hells as they ran by. The last 20 minutes we picked up our pace. I tried to help Sadie and Kennis close the gap on the top girls. Sadie wasn't a fan and asked me to stop talking. After running with the girls and catching a pass from Bryan, I turned back towards Sullivan. Ran a steady pace all the way back. 15.12 miles/7:47 mi pace

Got out to Hurricane Rim trail and got in a couple of miles before running back to catch up with the boys. I wanted to run more minutes with the boys but I was trying to make a 10 o' clock basketball game. So I turned around after 10-12 minutes with those dudes. Ended up running more with the girls after that. Got down to Chinatown Wash and checked out the views. Kate had to turn around earlier than the rest of the crew so I ran back with her. We picked up Brianna and Laney for a little bit then left them. I was impressed how well Kate charged up some of those hills. Made it in time for basketball. Great Monday run! 8.29 miles

Warm, tempo on track, 200s, and cool. I stuck with the biggest girls group for 10-12 of their minutes 18-20 minute tempo. We got rained and hailed on. It might have been snowing a little too. Then I did 4 200s with Alli and Scottie. The cool down was the worst because everything was soaked. I still enjoy days like this. 7.27 miles

AM- Weights and extended run in the cold. 4.10 miles 

PM- Memorable run in the desert with snow. Ran out towards Elephant Arch with the girls and coach Quinn. We had a snow ball fight a couple of miles into the run. I didn't throw anything at Brinley and Alli for obvious reasons. The sand was perfect. I extended before and after meeting with the team. 8.34 miles

Sore from some speed play on the track today.

I think I missed a group. My lungs were burning and the legs were tired. Cooled with girls. 7.28 miles
