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.

Early North Arm cruise. With the crazy summer schedule its been hard to get out! Hope the next few weeks I'm able to find me a rhythm! Always a great way to start a day! Back in the day we had a goal to complete this 8.4 out-n-back in under 60 mins. My best time was around 62-3 mins.. today 75 mins. Did have two people stops, but Ouch! Need to find those gears again.

Awesome eve'n run. Decided to head up Wheelers, Ice Box and up the Green Pond trail until I hit 3 miles and crusied it back. Trail is sweet. When I hit the turn off to Ice box I saw 4 mtn bikers heading up, so naturally I decided to try and pass then all by the time I hit the top of Ice Box... I passed the last one up the big climb after the stream crossing! Yeah baby...

Smooth run up Wheelers/ Ice Box / Maples to Coldwater TH. Great morning - the sun stayed behind the clouds most of the time, so the temps were great. Also, about 3/4 the way up Maples I turned a corner and there was a Bull Moose about 15-20 yrds away .. after the stare down he turned and ran. Awesome!! Just glad he didn't charge after me. Made it up to the Cold water TH sign in 54 minutes. Not sure on the vert, but it was great.

Sweet North Arm Trail crusier out past the Yacht Club and back. No Moose encounters, but ran into a deer toward the end of the run! Good temps, good music - just about right.

Early Black Trail cruiser down past Gertsen Bay and back around the Island loop. The air is thick with Allergy and my legs felt heavy..(prob from shoveling 8 tons of Pea Gravel yesterday..) So, a tough Mudder this AM.

Sweet North Arm run down to the parking lot and back. About 1/4 mile from the TH I had my second Moose sighting of the week! This time the moose decided to run in front of me on the trail for about another 1/4 mile before cutting off to the side.. Pretty Cool! Peace.

Well.. I thought why not, so did a two mile warmup over to the track at Snowcrest and then did 4 x 800's with a 400 recovery.. Splits not that impressive, but a starting point.. 3:32, 3:35, 3:30, 3:30.. mile at 8:00 back to the pad. Happy FrIday.
