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.

Wow, huge blizzard here caused my TM to stop when the lights flickered.  Cut this one short and hunkered down!

Did this run after shoveling about a foot of snow off of the driveway.  Felt terrible with tired back and left hammy.

Broke it up into 2 runs, one outside and one inside.  The treadmill pace is spot on with outside pace.

First run in Costa Rica and what a beauty.  Loved the sun and heat.  Stopped to watch a triathlon taking place at our resort during the run.  They were stretched thin on volunteers so I helped guide runners on a turn once and while. Inspiring to watch the leaders screaming towards the finish.  Some serious competition participated.

Back home in IL again.  I miss the warmth already.  Good to be back and on a firm schedule though.

Some faster paces mixed in, but I don't recall how much.  It was cold and raining out so I did these on the TM.
