Personal:

The expectation of peace and safety on public land outweighs dog owners' rights. You don't have to have a dog, but you do have the right to free travel. The bigger responsibility falls on the dog owner.

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.

Well..overall a great run. 1st mile I had two dog stops.. really starting to get irritated at dog owners who don't control their animals.. after the dog stops the rest of the run went pretty good.. 8:29, 7:56, 7:51, 7:56 with the last bit in 7:17 Avg right at 8:00 pace.

Knee acted better than yesterday, but still a bother.

Early morning 4.08 Ran to Pineview and back... Cool moment of the run - starteled a red fox a few feet away from me - I think it was chasing vols or something. 2 miles under 8. Avg 8:03 for the run. I think those jedi mind tricks are working...

After work sweat-fest!! Ran from my place to HairDog's pool. Probably was right around 98 degrees. Felt pretty good - considering I've been living on Mt. Dew and bratwurst for the last few days down in Powell!! Back to reality....

2 dog run... Got out semi early...not early enough though first dog encounter at mile 1. After I got rid of that one... second dog at mile 3.5 This one I couldn't get rid of until its owner came strolling by on her bike with no leash, apparently it had been stalking people all moring, but she seemed bent on getting fido his morning run... So, about 5 minutes later I heard this clanking from behind me - I turned around and there's dog number 2 coming straight at me..augh, luckily though this time it just wanted to run with me, so I turned around and headed back to girl on bike, but as soon as the dog saw her he went straight into the road - pretty soon cars are slamming on their brakes honking, so ironically I'm out in the freaking road trying to save this dog that 10 minutes earlier was trying to rip my leg off... and some people say I don't have a soft side...

Run was good though...
