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.

5.  On the treadmill.  I got some real short nylon shorts from amazon for $8.  My wife was laughing at me.  What they lack in length they do not make up for in support.  I had to fetch some whitey tighties.

For now, 8 mph counts as fast.  Treadmill.  Guess what?  Law and Order reruns are on ion tv.  Good show.

1 @ 7, 1@8 repeated, plus 2@7 to finish.  Somehow my wife volunteered to host thanksgiving this year.  I don't feel old enough for this opportunity.

I ran for a while on the treadmill before work.  Somehow the iPad I was watching interferes with the display on the treadmill, so I don't know the distance for sure.  But I was on that squeaky piece of crap for 55 minutes, so....

5 inside watching a football game, then 5 outside because it was halftime and too nice of a day to stay inside for another 45 minutes. 

I'm in much worse shape this year, both physical and financial,  because I'm not doing yard work anymore.  But mentally it's nice to see Saturday as a relaxing day off rather than another work day.
