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.

Last week, I decided to run the Sandy City 5K. Did one workout with Tawny Bybee in preparation, to dust the rust off my speed legs. 

Got to the race 40 minutes before start time. Warmed up with Tee Perry and had a feeling she was more fit than I was. Indeed she was. I couldn't really hang with her from the gun, so I just tried to keep a consistent space behind her for the whole race. Ended up in 2nd place, about 15 seconds behind her. Felt good to run fast again! Got a $75 gift card to Wasatch Running Cener...yay! New shoes!
