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.

I ran some hills today, up by mount loafer school and then up to the mailboxes down woodland hills road to canal road and then home. I took it easy going up, and then just tried on the way down to keep a good flowing stride. Average pace was 8:44  with a total time of 50:04, I did have a 7:42 mile on the way down so I am counting that as MP.

See ya tomorrow.

I had a mix of everthing this morning, snow drifts, wind the whole works! I ran out past Mini GU and even though I had some different conditions to deal with it was still good to see the gunk out of the air and the clear sky's. My average pace was way slow with the head wind and all the other elements at 9:10 with a total time of 55:37. It looks like a storm is coming today and tomorrow and then we're back to the cold, I can't wait for spring!

See ya tomorrow.

I hit the treadmill this morning, still way to much snow on the roads and it was a little cold for me, 6.60 miles on the treadmill in 60 minutes. I had some quarter mile pickups in the middle I didn't feel real good, I hope I'm not coming down with what my wife has had the last couple of days. I can't afford to get sick now with the SG Half Marathon next week...

See ya Monday
