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.

Accidentally put on my "too small, save for a day when I'm skinnier shorts" today. So I was nervous I was going to rip my shorts doing squats. Luckily they felt ok on the run. Did our 15 minute test today. The kids did so much better! I wasn't going to run with the kids but then I saw Udy trailing Kennis. I wanted her to bridge the gap so I jumped in at minute 4 or 5. She was tough and chipped away at the gap and passed Kennis on the last lap. It was fun running with her and motivating some other kids along the way. 5.82 miles

AM- Warner Valley. Started out feeling so tired. Started to warm up about 20 minutes in. Ran 2 5 minute tempos with AJ and Wesley. Then I turned back to find some more kids doing longer minutes. While running by myself I felt so miserable. Helped Udy and Kennis wrap up their last 10 minute tempo. Udy could've pushed a little better. Wrapped up minutes with the top girls. 9.01 miles 

PM- Just some afternoon heat. 2.03 miles

I woke up at 3 this morning with bad stomach pains (probably from wings). Then again at 5. Going into our warm up for the 2 miler I felt a little better but still had some lingering concerns. Sat in a porta potty for 5 minutes sweating like crazy. I knew I wasn't going to be able to run as fast as last year due to injuries. I did not predict this stomach dilemma. I wanted to run with Adri and Brin but once they passed me I wussed out. Nathan Hadley, AJ, Brianna, and Dalton R became my group. I was the group motivator as I struggled to not fall apart. Team ran well. I can only go up from here. Cooled with Adri, Kennis, and Brinley. 7.74 miles
