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 a little but mostly hiked because I woke up with a severe kink in my back and the combination of stabbing back pain between my shoulder blades as well as dull hip pain and mild plantar fascia pain was more than I was willing to run through.  At least I got to be outside hiking around in the foothills for 75 minutes.  Its hard to be in a bad mood when there is so much peaceful beauty around.

90 minute bike ride.  My back felt a little bit better but still pretty annoying.  The damp, cool, refreshing air put me in a good mood though.

I met a new friend, Janeth Alder today.  She just moved to Boulder and is a BYU track and CC alumni just like me (just a couple of years before me).  She is training for her first marathon this fall and has four kids around the same ages as my kids.  Janeth just happened to join the Running Republic group and my friend Sarah told me there was another LDS woman in the group so I contacted her to meet up.  We'll definitely be running again soon.  I may even go to the Running Republic workout this Saturday and run easy just to say hi to everyone.

My back pain was even more severe today but at least running with Janeth (pronounced Janet) helped me keep my mind off it a bit.  Muscle spasms in the back are the WORST!  Argh.

My back was killing me.  Started my run but walked home in frustration.
