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.

Highland Glen loop with Laureen. Really quite chilly when heading north up the trail. When we turned south with the wind at our backs, it was fairly pleasant. Laureen's running better all the time.

Family run around golf course loop. Pushed it hard up Canyon Road and down the road by the driving range. Felt pretty good, but will probably be a little sore come Sunday and Monday.

Easy run at 5:40 am. A little bit of plantar soreness this morning. Just working through the typical aches and pains as I try to build my mileage back up.

HighlandGlen loop at 5:40 am. The trails were a little slick in places after yesterday's rain and snow mix. Temperatures in the low 30's with occasional fog and mist. Felt pretty good over all, despite a little pain in left knee starting out.

Ran the Highland Glen loop with Laureen and then a mile on my own. A mostly nice day, especially when the sun would pop out and it seemed like spring. The aches and pains are all starting to fade.

Early morning run. A little slow getting started, but felt pretty good after a few minute. The cold air felt good.

Not really hurting, but not much spring in my legs either. I'll drop back on mileage a bit this week and then pick it up again next.

Highland Glen loop at noon. Stiff wind out of the northwest. Wind chill in the teens, but didn't feel so bad since the sun was out. Pushed a pretty good pace after the first mile or so (especially with the wind at my back on the way home).

Highland Glen loop. Left the house about 5:30 am. A moonless, clear night. I discovered that my headlight was burned out when I hit a dark section of the road. It wasn't too bad even though I tripped a little on some little branches that had apparently fallen out of truck. The light would have also been helpful on some sections of the trail when I was blinded by headlights. Pretty decent run over all.

Highland Glen loop with Laureen. It snowed overnight, but left the roads and sidewalks clear. It was snowing lightly throughout the run with a little breeze from the southeast. Felt pretty good overall. Put in an extra mile after we got back.

Light treadmill workout this morning as I was feeling some persistent soreness in my upper right thigh.
