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.

Ran up Timp via Timponooke and back in 3:24:55.  1:56:11 to the summit.   We had me, Greg, Chris, and 8 boys (Adam, Tanner, Levi, Peter, Hunter, Bracken, Taylor, and Austyn).  The boys and Chris were about 10-12 min faster than I was.  It was nice weather but a freezing cold wind on top!  My legs were so sore yesterday from Nebo on Friday and still sore today before we started so I was glad I made it ok.  

We hit a deer on the Corridor heading there going about 60 MPH, glad Greg's car held up as good as it did.  I feel bad about the amount of damage though.  Crazy day!

Ran with Greg down to Monarch the long way.  Chris and the boys started behind us and never caught us.  Greg was hurting and I dropped him for good about 7.5.  The knee was stiff and at first I couldn't get going, but it loosened up.  Didn't feel the foot a lot, but it was bugging a bit.  I have spent the last 3 nights digging into my quads, hammy, calf, and everything else in my left leg.  When I roll out it feels better, but then gets stiff all over again.  The first mile was 7:30 and then the miles around the Cove were in the 7s but the other 7 miles were below 7 min pace, 6:21 being the fastest.   1:07:48 for the run.

Progressive run on the trail to 6400 west and 13400 s loop.  7:49, 7:22, 6:45, 6:15, 5:50, 7:45 cool down.  Hot run, but I did ok until the last mile.  I think I caught a stomach bug because my tummy is wrecked!  6:58 ave
