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.

Bryce Canyon Half Marathon.  1:20:40 on 4 weeks of training.  10th overall and 2nd Master.  It was decent for me considering, but I really didn't have the legs to do much better.  Lots of work to do.  Fun weekened with my oaches and our spouses.

Ran the time trial with the kids.  Legs still sore from Bryce, and now it is the hammies!  Ran the 3.15 miles in 19:48 6:16 ave.  Ran behind Jaren and Preston, most because I wanted to keep them honest and I had no legs to go around.  2 mile cool down

Ute Stampede.  Ran in 3rd most of the race, at least from mile 1 on.  Jaren came back on a kid and won on a last second kick!  It was fun to see him work on the kid the whole race and come from behind to win!

Nice mornng, but a bit humid, especially during the run.  No legs today, which I figured.  actually got passed by 3 people in the middle of the race, two of them in my age.  Slow 10k for me, but still fun, ad it was good to get Jaren through a 10k.
