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.

Easy 10 miles. We were out of town this past weekend for a funeral so took the afternoon off to get caught up on house items and then went for a run before supper.

Got a big serving of humble pie today. I started out well but quickly faded around mile 18. I know what needs to be done, but my motivation is waning.  Regardless, another marathon finish is in the books. Yaa me!!

3 miles - All miles at around MP, whatever that is at this point considering my most recent marathon performance.  Let's just call it "faster than usual" pace. 

5 miles - TM after work all easy.
