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.

The calf was fine and it was chilly when we started north on the JRPWY.  It was fine for the first mile fartlek, but started to tighten in the next mile.  I finished the 2nd mile, but did not dare do anything else.  My claf cranked up pretty good.  I had been running with Jaren.  We ran into Greg and his team on the way back and he rode with us a couple miles back and visited.  6:10 and a 6:09 mile.  7:07 ave. Calf is swollen.
