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.

Dimple Dell Long run for me - longest Ive run since who knows when - High School?

Abit challenging as trails are abit too sandy for my desired running traction

Silver Lake

Ran 3 laps of trail around Silver Lake  at 1 miles each and then about 2 miles on trail/road at 9000 feet - hoping altitude helps my ability

Was tired from running last night, first time I ran twice in less than 10hours.

The sand hill is very challenging to get up, feels like Im barely moving on it as it is steep and you slide in the loose sand

Time was OK, I was 131st of 361 runners, but its always amazing I finish near last in my 50 to 54 year age group - too many fast old men I guess. At least this year I can beat 83 year old John Cahill, last year he beat me. I have trouble at start of race, takes me awhile to relax and settle into good pace for me. Alexander my son won his boys age group

Mill Creek Canyon from closed gate at Maple gate to end of road at Bigwater, 4.5 miles each way, good elevation gain on way up, downhill on way down, snow patches still on top. Took 1 hour 5 minutes to get up and 40minutes to get down. Most I have ran since high school I think at one time. Wasnt as tired as I thought

My legs feel it from yesterdays 9 mile, the most Ive done, but still I ran about 6 miles today. About 1.5 miles from where I parked my car this morning to my office but it was too awkward carrying my brief case and lunch. Then my 4.5 mile loop in Dimple Dell tonight. Im finding I have to force myself less to run now, even though there still is a mental battle of doing it or not doing it and wanting to do it and then the side of me that wants to be lazy

Strange - I feel the voice "you need to run" starting to win out over my other voice "dont do it, be lazy"

I thought I ran well but was disappointed in my time as it was hot which I dont run well in, probably more uphill and I had trouble with footing in rutted trail and sprinkler mudholes around Sugarhouse Park. Was 67th of 178 total runners and 5th in age group. Did a little warmup and ran back to car.

Got almost 30 miles in this week, alot for me. Just cant seem to run each day with work schedule and sons sports schedule

May have to run elsewhere as its getting too Sandy here, but I dont like running on urban streets. Need to remember to put on insect repellant with west nile now being detected

Bowman Fork to Gobblers Knob

This was actually a 10 mile hike with 3000 foot elevation gain. For now Im counting this as a 3 mile run

Need to go to a new place as this has too much horse use - so you have to put up with horse manure and scared horses when a runner of my amazing speed zips by. I think I can do the other side of Dimple Dell as a run although it would be further distance
