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.

12 miles in the cool morning mountain air on trails here in Flagstaff. Still feeling the altitude but loving the temps.

6 miles cautiously run on the trails this morning. After running fast yesterday I wanted to make sure my calf didn't act up again. I could tell it wasn't 100% today but it was ok.

I ran to work this morning and then got to run home in a rain storm. Since it doesn't rain during the day very often here, it was really fun. 

6 total miles.
