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.

Trail was pretty slippery so good choice to bring them along. Made it up to the peak - sun shining, no wind..We crusied back down to rainbows and decided to do the north trail loop. We were almost to the top of the first climb when out of nowhere Bryce came flying down, chatted with him for a bit - good times met another runner BJ. We ran the upper trail to the end of the canal and Back - good times. Was happy I was able to hold a pace on the way back.. Perfect temps! Peace N.

Where the deer and the antelope play, the Buffalo run!!! Weather was a bit sketchy all week, but turned out to be quite nice for the 25k. Got to the start of the race with a couple of my brothers - Gdoc and Fritz.

Really the only goals I had going into this race was to put Gdoc back in his rightplace and to try and beat my time from 2 yrs ago when I did the 25k. Jim (minus the buffalo hat?) started us off right at 9 AM. Love races that start on time! Wanted to try and stay in the upper qrt of the pack to miss a lot of the people trains moving on the single track. Got into a good groove early moved pretty good up the first climb to the saddle and along the trail to the climb at lone tree. Ran past 3-4 50k'rs that I knew so, that got me going. I beleive it was Scott that crusied past me looking strong by lone tree! Only tactical mistake of the race was pushing it hard down the downhill hitting some low 6 min pace, I think it took a bit to much outta my legs, but there were a few people I was trying to catch and pass..which I did.

Started up the switch backs, keep a pretty good pace up to the upper ones and had to walk for about 20-30 yrds - that's when I saw Gdoc down on a lower switch and decided I better get movin! Didn't walk again until the little climb back up to the saddle - took a hammer gel here and started like a horse headed home to the finish line.

I got lylified twice in the last 1.5 miles of the race some girl in skin tight gray tights blew past me.. As long as it wasn't G' I was just trying to keep my pace up - passed a bunch of runners on that section too, so I didn't feel to bad!

So, I think I was 20 seconds slower than my time 2 yrs ago, but righted the brotherhood once again. Great day, great times.

PS..Lily did you survive the AidStation?

Got out for a mid morning butt kicking. Headed down the canyon and got a txt from Shane saying he was starting north on the BST so, I met up with him and did the 8 mile north loop on the upper trail. He was pushing it this morning so, it was working me pretty good. We got back to the cars he had to roll, but I decided to head south on the BST so, headed up the climb from rainbows some serious head wind heading south - sucking the life outta me but got to taylor canyon and decided to head up Malan's and see how I felt - made it to the Malan's overlook and turned it around....

Awesome Trail run this AM with G'doc. Decided to get a good run/climb in so, headed South from Rainbows on the BST up the grinder past Waterfall and Strong's canyons and went up the Beus trail and did the upper loop and headed back down the upper trail to Taylor canyon and then decided to get to the TOP of Malan's Peak before the storm hit!

I as an Eagle Scout had my spikes in my pack, G' had forgotten his, so we each took one and started the climb - The snow started to hit as we hit the Peak. Pretty sketchy coming back down with one foot sliding on the ice and the other holding you up, Just a couple falls one calf cramp and we hit the bottom of Taylors, About a minute into our run back, the hail started to fly and continued until we hit the cars. Washed the run down with a Mt Ogden Burger. Great run - felt pretty good throughout!

Needed to get some miles on the pavement, with Ogden creeping up!! So, went with Jamie and her crew - they were planning on hitting 18-20 miles, a few of them are building to their first 26.2 at Ogden so, ran the first 4 miles with them ( around a 9:20ish avg).. At that point I felt like I need to pick it up so, put in the headphones and tried to find a good rythem. Ended up running around Pineview - about perfect weather. The last 11 miles avg 7:55ish so I felt really good about that...Peace all ya all...

Epic run! Gdoc and I crusied down to Moab to get some hrs, miles, and climbs in on the trails around Moab. Figured last bigish type run to get ready for Ogden Marathon and Squaw Peak..

We started at Prichett Trail head and headed up Prichett Canyon! The scenery up the canyon is just awesome. We made the climb up and out of Prichett and decided to add-on the out-n-back to Prichett Arch. Then continued on down the trail to the Hunter rim turn off. Took the Hunter Rim trail all the way back to Kane road. Made the climb up Kane Rd to the Amasa trail system. Went up Cliffhanger to the out-n-back climb to Jackson lookout. Then took the Potash trail out to the turn at RockStacker... and Jackson trail back to the Prichett Trail head.

G-doc almost sank into the cold dark water toward the end of the run at the final river crossing...Also, not sure on the vert, I think the watch gets confused the garmin had it at 5,732 but I doubt it was that much, although it's a very technical trail with a lot of climbing...

Well so much for NOT running today. Got a call from Shane last night and said he was hitting the BoSHo North this AM. So, you know how easy I give in to temptation -  We ran from Rainbows on the upper trail out to the Nature Center parking lot and back on the upper trail to Rainbows - with a push up bird song trail at the end to hit 10! Let the Good Times Roll...Peace.

Second annual Ragnar Relay at Snowcrest Jr. This is a race put on by Ragnar in association with the Jr high PTO as a fund raiser and good will from Ragnar since they run through the community with the wasatchback.. Most people get teams of 15, 5, or 3 to run it as a relay - there were about 6 of us that opt'd to just go solo... Course: 1 mile loop

A couple goals going into this race - beat last years time 2:08, second not get lapped. There's a stud man runner that lapped me last yr! Third goal was to try and get under 2:00 hrs.

Goal 1 - Accomplished time 2:02:06

Goal 2 - Accomplished although he beat me by about 2 - 3 minutes.. augh.

Goal 3 - Not in the books today, had some major headwind again for half of the mile loop. Meaning I got to hit that for about 7 miles...

Race: Ogden Marathon (26.2 Miles) 04:11:00
Slow milesFast milesTotal Distance
26.200.0026.20

Ogden Marathon #4 in the books, hard to imagine actually. I'd classify this one as one of my toughest. I felt pretty good going into the race... I always seem to under estimate the importance of actaully getting in some long distance ROAD miles to prepare for one of these.. My longest road run was about 12 miles - many fantastical TRAIL miles though..

Started off feeling great, first mile 8:10 ( to fast for my training, but felt good, so next 6 miles around 7:50 avg mistake #1..) Mistake #2 came at mile 9 - the course switched this year to Cliff shots instead of gu.. I took one here and downed what seemed like a thick pudding of blue berries or something... ugh! The nex 6 miles crusing around Pineview to the half way point avg around 8:15 still feeling good, but sensing some trouble.. Hit the hill at mile 14 and just tried to make it to Porto Stop #1.. Ugh.. Once you feel Nausiated you're cooked (felt like water and Cliff pudding was sloshing around the rest of the run - until I heimlich'd myself after the race - note to self should have done this sooner) Had to slow the pace down, but had to make Porto Stop #2 at mile 17.5.. Knew race was cooked and everytime I drank something I just felt worse.. Decided I'd try and get under 4:00 and stick with it... Until mile 21, ran into a friend that was struggling with a leg cramp and walked/jogged her in from there, so actually I pretty suprised we hit 4:11 with basically walking a good portion of the last five...Felt good to help her finish though... That's what it's all about!! 

Props to G' man - he had a great rUN!

Oh and FYI - G' had to borrow my Adrenaline Blue's because of his sausage toe..

Nice job Nic! I think cliff shots are gross eeek! I also don't like gu's or hammer gels. But I tend to do the best with hammers. Allie also introduced me to shot blocks. Those taste good and work well to.I also think eating the banana's during a marathon worked wonders for me. They are a great natural way to fuel.

Actually feel - great. Haven't run a lick since the race on sat, but no soreness in the legs etc. Now - the quandry - Squaw Peak, just got the offical word - about 25 miles of the course is under SNOW with rivers and missing trail, so Bozung switched the course to an out-n-back.. Need to decide about this...

No mention of letting us roll over to next yr. BaHumbug I say...

Race: Squaw Peak (DNF) (50 Miles) 06:30:00
Slow milesFast milesTotal Distance
30.000.0030.00

I guess I should start with, 30 is the new 50. My second Squaw didn't go quite as I expected...

Felt pretty dang good going into the race. Training hasn't been excellent or anything, but solid I think. Headed down to the prerace briefing with Gdoc (his first Ultra and 50) and Shane billy goat gruff. Ate some Hampton Inn spaghetti and rolls listened to John carry-on and the next thing I knew it was 4:00 AM and we were headed up the canyon for the 5:00 AM race start.

Planned on running with G' until one of us bonked out or one felt the need for speed. So, we started off heading down the paved trail towards bridal veil falls until we turned left on the single track at Nunn’s park.  This starts a pretty big climb up the back side of Squaw peak to Hope campground (aid station #2) about 6 miles in. Then you climb up. and up to hit the squaw trail that connects to the Rock Canyon trail - with the course change we dropped down rock canyon on the BoSHO (mile 11)  headed south to Spring Creek Canyon (mile 20) and UPUP spring canyon, this section up to the jeep trail heading into Pole Haven (mile 25)  was a beast. Pole Haven was the turn around point.

At mile 7-8ish just heading into Rock Canyon I had taken a gu along with an enduralyte. Let's just say within about 10 minutes is when my pain and suffering started. My stomach cramped really bad and then I lost my cookies mid-stride really without any notice. I think the sight scared  G' a little bit. The down fall of this I was unable to drink or eat anything to maintain energy and the essential minerals, every time I would try and eat something I'd get nauseated and a little light headed. As I tend to sweat a lot - the lower trail conditions and the temps were sucking me dry. I convinced G right heading into Spring about mile 19 that I was going to drop or take a while at the aid station, so go make us proud. I ended up sitting at Spring creek for about 20 minutes trying to relax and get the breathing better which I did so, I decided to start the ou-n-back to Pole Haven. About 10 minutes into the climb, I felt pretty horrible again, but decided I needed to get to the the Turn and back to Spring and reevaluate.. Coming back down into Spring I knew I was in trouble.. So, I decided instead of walking for another 20 miles it was time to call it a day.

Props to G' he gutted out a nice finish! Billy goat gruff took 6th and Bryce took 7th overall. This course is tough!! Those guys are super studs.

Peace.

Ah.. the R-scape LoOP. Hit the section of BoSHo that is to be known as the R-scape loop with N Fisher, Shane, Brian Stromberg, and Booth on his Spiffy Bike. Trail is in great shape after the night time thunder rain-fest. I did forget how sore one gets from doing lunges, mtn climbers, rockets, squat jumps... but felt good to turn the dial up a bit with those guys.

Hey, where is the Mid Mountain 26.2? I am wondering if that is the race my brother is doing. I will have to ask him.

From Oreo on Tue, Aug 09, 2011 at 16:56:38 from 206.81.136.61

Mid-Mountain starts in DeerValley ends in ParkCity...all on single track or so I hear...

From Kelli on Tue, Aug 09, 2011 at 19:16:27 from 71.219.67.82

The one they are doing is in August, I guess. It will be my brother's first race ever----a trail marathon. He is as nuts as his wife. ;o)

How many runners?? Single track is just HARD when it comes to passing, if not impossible. Especially when people do not want to let you by.

From Oreo on Tue, Aug 09, 2011 at 23:49:21 from 71.38.240.143

Kelli.. Mid Mountain is Sept 10th.. Same day as the WASATCH 100!! Which you should do BTW. I think they cap the race at 250 runners...

From Kelli on Wed, Aug 10, 2011 at 10:43:30 from 71.219.67.82

I am actually going to help my brother crew my sister in law for Wasatch 100. They do not want any pacing help from me (I think she wold beat me even if I was at mile 2 and she was at 77---I can not do that technical stuff with any confidence). So, I get to drive. ;o)

I think I need to just get out there more and try the trails. You guys may think I am joking, but I truly do have a serious (and yes, irrational) fear of wildlife. I did notice that once we got going, I stopped thinking about it. I only worried when I heard things in the bushes at the end and when we saw the mama and baby moose---a bad scenario! They were a ways off but we were stopped and looking at maps cause we were off course and I was sure they were going to catch up! OH, and I had a small panic attack when there was a sign that said, "Bear Country."

AND then, of course, there is my fear of falling and getting hurt. Falling on my first real trail run ever was not a confidence boost.

Talking to the Goat last night and he talked me into meeting him this AM at the top of 27th to run the  Striders MALANS Peak challenge. So, met him and we did about a mile + warm up then hit it. He was gone by the first bridge, in fact I probably went to hard trying to stay up with him. Oh well...

I haven't done the climb since spring and Man I forget how tough that sucka is.. My garmin had it at total time 1:04:13 and Moving time 57:07 so I don't remember standing around for 7 minutes, but maybe my crawl was to slow to register..hahaha. Also side note here  -my Forerunner 205 measured from the 27th to the Peak and back at 4.24, Shane had borrowed one of Striders Garmins and he had it at 4.45 - so maybe time for an upgrade. Oh ya, Sorry Bryce Mt. Goat through a time of 48:10 down....

Kelli with an 'i' Runners Boot Camp is great - she mixes it up every week a bit, so one week we might do Intervals, the next Partner band runs, Team runs (back to front sprints) then mixed in with that a bunch of wall sits planks, lunges, rockets, ab routines, then just some plane old running on the track - at an increasing effort. We usually get around 15-20 people there which makes it a good workout.

Great times. Good tough climb up "puke hill" (I guess a few people have named it) then basically an awesome Trail run all the way to RattleSnake.

Wow what an awesome course! Great trail and experience for my first Mid Mountain! I'll break down the milage spec's when I'm able to plug in the Garmin.

Brother G and I decided to bust this trail race out. Great temps - the only misleading thing about this race is "it's all downhill". Wahahaaa for the first 20 plus miles it's basically a grinder with .25 to .50 downs thrown in here and there. The last few miles you do get some sweet downhill if your legs can handle it. I felt great throughout the whole run, although my nose was draining the entire time. Allergies are at a max up here - plus they had just cut all the edges of the trail where they could, so breathing and nose were my biggest enemies today. I beleive 300 started and about that finished.

Splits as my Garmin 205 recorded them. First half  8:50, 10:29, 10:16, 9:35, 8:54, 9:40, 9:18, 9:15, 9:58, 9:51, 11:21, 9:51, 9:45 - Felt pretty good on the grinders looking forward to the downhill that kept getting farther and farther away.

Second Half: 10:44, 11:02, 13:06, 11:42, 14:12 (went weaksauce here for some unknown reason - I think this was the jeep trail climb up to the top of one of the peaks) , 12:57, 13:20, 11:00, 8:54, 13:27, 10:04, 9:00

Also - my watch had it at Total Ascent: 4,697 and Descent: 5,748.. These seem iffy but you never know what covering 26 miles does..

Bro G' had an excellent race as usual! I think he hides hoofs under those big shoes of his.

I call this one a Redemption run!! Last year's STGM left me with a major case of Heat stroke and a longing to redeem my performance. Although I had my doubts early as it was another record setting beginning temp at the starting line... Seriously!!

I had decided earlier that my goals for the race were to 1. Beat last years time 2. Get under 4 hrs 3. No major WALL smackdowns as in my last 2 marathons 4. Keep a steady pace 5. Stave off the Heat as long as possible.

I believe I accomplished all 5.. So, I'm very happy with how yesterday went down especially with having run the Mid Mountain Marathon 3 weeks ago.

First - my time of 3:54 was a 14 minute improvement over my time last year - yehaw.

I did bring 4 s-caps to munch on along the way, which I beleive helped me accomplish goal 5 at least til mile 23... I was starting to get sucked into the heat vacuum by then, but felt pretty good overall.    

Race Details..

Mile 1-3: Started off right between the 3:45 and 4:00 hr balloon pace groups. I believe I stayed there the entire run. Knew it was going to be a heat fest when I had sweat dripping off my hat by mile 2... First three miles: 9:09 8:58 8:45

Miles 4-6: 8:25 8:28 8:14

Felt great just crusin.

Miles 7-9: 7:56 9:34 8:52

Felt great. Ran all of Veyo hill

Miles 10-13: 8:57 9:03 8:59 8:34

First half was right on schedule - had some nice cloud cover to block the sun for a bunch of it. Going a little slower was paying off - body feeling pretty good. Took a gu bomb at mile 7 and 13.

Miles 14-16: 8:50 8:08 8:12

Throwing water over my head at each aid station starting at 13.. Was going to throw the headphones on here, but decided I was going to finish the race out without any tunes..

Miles 17-19: 8:15 8:52 9:04

Getting hot, but manageable. Just taking water at the aid, avoiding the gatorade..

Miles 20-22: 9:04 8:20 9:04

Happy to see the over pass, kept a run entire way.

Miles 23-26: 10:00 8:46 10:53 10:38

Starting to feel the effects of the heat and walking a bit further at each aid station. I knew I had 4 hrs in the bag, so wanted to finish strong, but have a good time. Ate a popsicle some kid was handing out.. high fiving some kids along the finish route... The best part of the last mile though is the ice cold wash cloth they hand out....

Good times... Avg pace 8:56

I have only heard terrible story after terrible story of a run. It almost made me glad I had a stress fracture! ha!

What an amazing, painful, snowy, wet, slippery, fantastical mess my run was today. Had the day off (thanks Columbus) so, wanted to get something sweet in especially after taking last week off. Running some errands this morning I noticed Ben Lomond Peak just staring down on me mocking me, so I decided today was the day I was going to climb up there! Even though you could see the D%&^ snow line up there. Sent a txt out to Bryce hoping he'd be able to swing it - and wala.. in a few hrs we were making our way from the North Ogden Divide trailhead - Sweet.

I warned Bryce I wouldn't be moving very fast, but needed to conquer this mountain!

It's pretty much a grinder all the way up to the saddle about mile 4-5. We started hitting snow around mile 3! And yes it only got more muddy and wet the higher we went. AWESOME.

We hit the summit and the wind was rippin - snapped some pics and ran slid down the peak to the trail at the bottom of the upper switchbacks. We slogged our way back down the trail. I don't think I could feel my feet between miles 5-10.

Bryce literally pulled me up the hill - all props to him for helping me get up there. He's a machine or a Jedi I haven't figured out which one yet. Thanks Bryce.

Great times...

Very cool run today. This is the best time of year. Love it when you can wear shorts and long sleeves and run in the snow. However, thanks to JUN, I will never run anywhere near snow again...unless, of course, there is some fantastic treat at the end for me.

GREAT JOB! My legs are nowhere near being able to do that. Crap, I am getting freaking old.

Sweet AM trail run with G'man on the BST. Headed North from Rainbows in 25 degree weather, wind whipping.. forgot my gloves, so by the time we hit the canal my thumbs were basically frozen.  Although in shorts my legs never felt to cold. Once up on the upper trails with the sun shine - AwesomE! Trail in great shape climbs felt good, energy was lagging a bit, but haven't hit many DD's since St. George. We went all the way to the Nature Center Parking Lot and back...

Ran into Bryce on the way back - he looked to be in good form and ready to dominate the 2012 circuit. Great day to be out under the Blue Dome.
