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.

After a layoff due to a lower back problem, I finally had to try to run today.  I started out with walking, with some pain and stiffness that gradually lessened.  Finally I started jogging, and ran 2 miles total.

Easy 5 miles, mostly pavement.  I had to walk a lot to loosen up my lower back.  Finally started to run slowly, and by one mile there was no pain or stiffness.  Legs actually sore from easy 2 miles yesterday.  Ridiculous.

5 miles, mostly pavement.  I needed less walking today to get started, and it felt better than before.
