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.

So much out-of-shape-ness! Feeling somewhat sore from the last couple days of running, so today's run was tough. Plus, it's the most miles and minutes I've run since September! Super crazy. (91.8)

I had one of those today.. most miles/minutes I've run at once since late October. It was inspiring. Also makes me wonder how the heck I ever did a marathon. Any big goals this year?

So true! Going from super awesome shape this summer to the crappy slowness I am now is super weird. Kinda depressing. Goals? Mostly just get back into shape for track without making my injuries come back. Once that's accomplished, then I'll decide on some "big goals." How about you?
