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.

Hey, I'm back!  Finally got my mileage up to something respectable and feeling human again.  It was a long winter/spring of injuries caused primarily by NOT running.  That's right... beware of time off.  I took three weeks of scheduled down time and parlayed that into six months of IT-related injuries, including forays into chiropractic treatment and orthopedic surgeons, neither of which helped one iota.  Finally, just being diligent with massage and slowly building my mileage is what got me over the hump.  Lesson learned.  Just hope I don't forget.

After the storms last night we finally had some nice cool weather for running this morning.  My trail run was pretty slow because my legs are tired from the track workout last night (see yesterday's blog).  Ok... good to be back.  I hope everyone is well.  I have not kept up with the blog, so my apologies up front.  I'll get back up to speed soon.  Cheers...
