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.

Spectacular run to start off 2012!! Bro G' talked me into heading down south to tackle the beast loop known as Grandeur. We parked at some TH and started up and up.. The trail pretty much looked like this for the first 2.25 miles to the summit.

We passed a bunch of hikers and hit the summit

Unbelievably nice weather out - Perfect actually.. The 8 plus miles down the backside and along Pipeline to Rattlesnake were also excellent! Down the canyon road and along wasatch to the car was a grinder... Quads hammersauced from Saturdays run already.

Sweet one to have in the books - loved it. Thanks - G'.

After work BST run with a whole group of people.. Decided to jump in on a local trail running clubs run (Aric, BJ, Jim, Harrison, Brin, Sherri, Shawn, Eric, I'm forgetting a few in there somewhere). Headed north from Rainbows everyone kinda did there own thing heading up the grinder to the canal road - we all just kinda moved across the upper trail to the bridges and looped back.. Good times. Will hit these runs when I can... Awesome sunset - ALSO January 5th and running in Shorts....doesn't get much betta!

Whimped out, head bowed, shoulders hunched, cold induced run at the gYm after work. Should'a hit them trails, but would'a could'a should'a.. Good push but uneventful hour on the mill o' life. Gym was hopp'n tonight..  I would guess 2-3 X's as many people as AM sessions. Better Luck tomorrow...

Alright alright.. Decided I better get out under the blue dome today!! Met up with the running group I tagged along with the other day at the 22nd st trail head ( about 12 of us ) started heading south on the upper trail up Bues all the way to the bridge in Bues canyon. Crusied back to the 22st trail head and lost some layers downed a shot and ran to rainbows and turned around back to 22nd. Awesome temps, great group to run with - nice blue dome session.

After work mill-fest at the gYm. I know, I know.. Was hoping to get out under the Blue Dome, but weather and Jaw pain prevented it.. so, ran and then sat in the Steam Room until I almost passed out.. Nice.

Finally HIT the Blue Dome!!

Decided to head out in the 5 degree weather for a good road beat down. All the trails around here have turned into a River of ICE so, thought this would be the smartest thing to do. Started off towards Hunstville - picked up HD at the end of 7424 E and we cruised it around Pineview and up to the top of Trappers where the turn to Basin is. Felt great during the climb up trappers didn't have to shut it down once, so I'll take that. Once at the top turned it around and headed back to pick up HD - shared a Honey Stinger Waffle with him - these may just be my new favorite trail snack.. Cold, very cold, but AWESOME.
