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.

Super smoky today but we ran the Orchards Days 5k in Santaquin anyway.  A couple fast guys, but Jaren and I did okay.  The 1 and 2 took off and beat us pretty good, but we took out the other two guys about half way.  i caught Jaren at about a mile and we ran the next 1.5 together and then he pulled away a bit on the last .5 of uphill.  I stayed close, about 5 seconds back and ended up 4th iwth an 18:23.  Mile warm up and cool down.

Up to the Cove and then back up and down.  One of my down miles was 4:59.  It rained all day alot and then it rained on us at practice, but it brought back all of the smoke.  Craziest weather I have ever seen!

I am sick and felt sick all night, probably shouldn't have run, but I did.  Ran the first 10 with Tim and Hunter, then the last 10 down to the Parkway solo.  I kept a decent pace, but I felt aweful and was destroyed when I finished.  I will be sore too!  6:52 ave

7:05 ave, last mile in 6:20.  Started slow up Butterfield Cayon and ended at the Jordan River Parkway on 12600 S.  First mile was 7:50.  Ran with Tim and his crew for about 6-7 miles.  Finished the rest solo.  Felt way better than last week.  The smoke was really bad today though.
