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 went to Ethan Soccer game in Payson and then After the game I ran home, its just over 4 miles or so and it felt pretty cool running in the dark, I came home via canal road. Pace wass pretty good at the start and then I slowed a little towards the end but all in all I felt pretty darn good. My average pace was 8:39 with a total time of 37:35, it was a beautiful night and I'm glad I decided to run, it was a great way to end the day.

See ya tomorrow.

I ran after work and I ran out past the stake center and towards Mini GU and then back to the house, I felt pretty sluggish the first couple of miles but a little better towards the end, my average pace was 8:55 with a total time of 38:08. It was good to get another run in and I am glad that I went out again, I need to make a commitment to get up in the morning and get it done. It just makes the day go better and then I don't have to try and find time after work.

See ya tomorrow.

I ran out past mini GU corner and then back to the house all via canal road, after a 2 mile warm up I tried to pick up the pace on the last of every mile until the last mile and then I just cruised in. My pace on those quarter mile pick ups were in the 7:20 range, my average pace 8:40 with a total time of 52:36, I was a little tired towards the end of the run but it was nice to try and wake my legs up a little.

See ya Monday,
