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 with Greg tonight and went out to Butterfield Park.  Mike Bradshaw told us about a trail he had made that wasn't long but was steep and switchbacked up the mountain.  We found it and ran up.  Cool little trail!  came back the same way.  7:38 pace.

After my invite we went up to Willard to stay the night at the in-law's place.  We wanted to go to the Brigham City Temple and Greg was running TOU, so I figured I would do a long run in Logan and run with him for a while.  I got up and made it over to Logan by 7:00am.  I parked in fronto of our old house and ran through River Heights, Providence, and Millville, then up Hollow Road.  I thought I would run into runners at the mouth of the canyon, but they must have started late.  I ended up running into the headwind for a couple of miles and made it clear to past half way before I found Greg.  On the way I saw Jake flying down the canyon with that tailwind, , Sasha, a kid I coached at Riverton (who ended up 9th overall), Adam,Rachelle running awesome, Drew, and others.  Stopped and talked to Cody for a couple of minutes, it was good to see him, it has been forever!

I jumped in with Greg, who was with the 3:15 group.  I ran with him until a mile to go and ended up with 24 miles when I wanted 20.  I felt fine, and enjoyed running 12 miles of the marathon bandit.  Greg did really well accept for around mile 20 and mile 23 and 24 where I really had to drag him along.  The 3:15 pacers and group caught and passed us at 23 miles and I told Greg he had to get them by the end when I left him by the Tabernacle, he got them.  I ran over to the park after leaving Greg and had exactly 24 miles on the Garmin when I got there.  7:22 ave.

Greg ended up 3:13:54 for his first marathon with limited training, not bad.  I talked to several people afterward that ran well, like Rachelle and Adam.  Beautiful day to race, you couldn't ask for better conditions.  I had a good time running and had more problem doing the 24 miles. Good to get a long one in after a busy busy week.  It gives me more confidence going into St. George in 3 weeks, being way under trained and under raced. I should still do OK.
