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.

5 mi - Lunch, lower back and butt are sore which is a sure indication that I've been doing too much sitting and not enough moving.

5 mi - After work on the mill while finishing the movie "Major League". Always liked the 80s vibe and one-liners of that movie.

No run, totally out of it all day.  Up really late the night before as wife had a kidney stone and we had to go to the hospital for emergency removal.
