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.

Drove up to Lambert and did a few loops there. It was kind of hot out, about 80 degrees. I think I saw Dustin Bybee on my run which was pretty cool.

Good run in the evening. The sun was set and there was a cool breeze the entire time, counldn't have asked for more optimal conditions. Did a loop out around Lone Peak and back. For some reason the first 3/4 of a mile I was dying haha. Fortunately one I settled in a little bit I felt much better. 

These short runs are kind of boring, but it's what I need to do right now. I'm hoping by the end of summer I can be doing 50 miles a week, but I'm just not in shape right now. I'll probably run 18-20 miles this week, and slowly build up.

Just a quick run up on the Bonneville Shoreline Trail. Good times.
