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.

Threw my back out playing tennis on the 6th. A lot of pain and limited mobility since. Tried an easy walk Tuesday, did okay, so did a slightly more strenuous 40-minute one today. So frustrating.

Hike around WHP with Shannon, then played the infield. Felt the back, but it went okay.

Actually ran a step! 3:00 walk, 3:00 run for 30:00 but did it. Probably ran for closer to 1.5 miles, but at the paces I'm going it should be rounded down.
