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 the Payson Park loop but I cut out the rollers, my legs were not feeling good this morning... They must not have been recovered from my long run on Saturday, my average pace was slow at 8:45 with a total time of 54:30. I was faster on the way home than I was on the way out so my legs must have lessened up some on the way back. It was still a good run and a great way to start out the day.

See ya tomorrow.

I ran down to the high school and ran the girls 2 miles and before they were ready to go I did 4 laps around the track waiting for them to get ready. After that I ran back up to canal road and did a few more miles up there to get past the 8 miles. I had 4 MP miles for the day and they went like this,  7:57, 7:47, 7:54, 7:44, my average pace was 8:08 with a total time of 1:06:47. It was a good run and I'm glad I was able to get it in.

See ya tomorrow.

I ran out past GU Corner and down into the riverbottoms, I ran my 2 miles loop down in there and then back to the house via canal road.  When I returned home I ran 2, 2 mile loops from my house to finish up, I felt okay today but not great I just kind of got through it...  I ran into my Brother Curtis and we chatted for a bit, also chatted with the Spanish Fork crew. My average pace was 8:39 with a total time of 2:19:39, I'm glad that I was able to get this one in the books.

See ya Monday.
