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.

I'm back!  Okay, I've been actively engaged in excercise, just not running.  But today I took my first run after3 months of not! I was  bit scared, I admit.  It took me a week to build up my courage.  But when my friend volunteered to babysit for an hour, I had no more excuses. 

It was a gorgeous day!  I loved every second of it. Although my arms got really achy from holding them up. I have been doing P90X and really working out my arms, shoulders, back, etc. I thought it would make me stronger, but it kind of feels like its had a negative impact on my running. We'll see as time goes by.

 

Also, I ran in racers today. I've never done that before. It was quite fun. I wish I knew my pace.
