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.

PM: Fantastic afternoon run on the Pipeline Trail. Had the canyon mostly to myself and light snow most of the way. Took it pretty easy, especially on the uphills, because my achilles is still achy and I'm racing tomorrow morning.

Andy and I are doing the Cottonwood Heights Turkey Trot. You get pies for winning your age group so hoping for that. The whole family (all 4!) plus my mom are here and Andrea is going to join us because Jake is out of town. Should be fun.

Didn't wear a watch but ran pretty hard in the hilly Cottonwood Heights Turkey Trot. I won my age group but, sadly, no pies for age group winners :-(

Great race as usual with about 2,000 people this year. Andy ran 25 minutes.

AM: Woke up this morning and decided to do Grandeur Peak instead of a long run (takes about the same amount of time). It was a beautiful morning and their were few people on the trail. A little icy at the top.

A day late, but I'm thankful to live in a place where I can experience such awesomeness right next door to my house.

PM: 3 mile jog around the neighborhood.
