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.

AM- Ran to Rosecrest early and met the kids.  We had a bunch today, including 9 girls!  We went up to the Juniper Crest building via Rosecrest.  Very nice temps this morning.  I ran with the kids up and back to Crown Rose and then turned around and ran home.  7:37 ave for 6 miles.  Legs are still sore and sore was the knee, so hopefully this runn loosens me up more.   It sucks getting up early, but it was nice running.   

PM- Butterfild Park to the top of the Cove and back.  Knee was almost sore and legs still stiff, plus it was pretty hot (92 degrees), but glad I ran again.  7:20 ave

Wore my Freedom ISOs today for the first time.  Legs are ok today, but the knee was sore of course.  I warmed up on Leila and then did a tempo mile (5:36) down Shaggy into the wind.  i can tell I haven't done anything fast all year.  Ran another mile, got the kids started for practice, then ran home with Greg and Chris.  7:09 ave.

Met Greg and Chris in South Jordan and Greg drove us up to Alta.  Crazy weather switch from 90s to 50s yesterday!  It wa 30 degrees at Alta when Chris and I started running!  We ran down the canyon and Greg started with us at 9.5.    The weather was betterout of the canyon and I shed my gloves and vest in Greg's car.  Greg ran with me and Chris took off.  I felt way better today then the past longer runs in the last month.  Even though I slowed dwon the last 10, I still picked it up the last mile on the parkway trail and ran 6:30 and had an ave of 6:29 for the entire run.  I was at 6:15 for the first 10.  Of course I am trashed, but I needed a solid run, and could use a few more in the next 3 weeks.
