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.

Didn't feel like running today. Spent most of the time zoned out thinking about a good friend who is in the final hours of his life. I just found out a couple weeks ago that he's fighting cancer and feel terrible for not reaching out to him sooner. Now the end of the battle is near and I missed the opportunity to say how much I loved him as a friend. God is calling home a wonderful saint.

Barely got up this morning just for 7 miles. Had one of those morning neck kinks and feeling unmotivated since losing a dear friend last night. Wishing I could have been there for one more goodbye.

Good day considering the funk I've been in. Feels better to run more in down times, but the hard part is motivation to start. Super hot and humid outside with no break in sight for several days. I think I'm finally getting acclimated because I don't sweat as long after running as I did weeks ago. Just have to roll with it, I'm blessed to be alive and running regardless of the weather.

Too hot out so did the second run on the dreadmill. Used the incline to make it more challenging.

Planned for more, but volunteered most of the day to helping with a fund raiser for church and didn't get up early enough. Measured HR with a monitor this time and averaged 95 for the entire run with most miles ran in the 8s.
