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.

Morning run and my left ankle and achilles took awhile to warm up. Still pretty stiff when I wake up. 

Through Manette on 11th, over the Manette Bridge and then looped around Evergreen, stopped and checked out the new dock. Then back the same way. 30:00

Only two of us showed for morning hoops, so after Grant and I shot jumpers for awhile I went and ran two miles on the treadmill, then went to work.

Quick loop at Illahee, then as I started for a second loop I ran into Jon Buesch, walking his dog. I stopped to say hello, and half an hour later we were still there talking. So I figured it was time to bag the run and go get some dinner.
