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.

Kim and I slept in till 8:30 then went up to the Olympic Oval to run in shorts and singlet in the New Year Revolution Run. Good thing since it was around 4 degrees with wind chill -8 in SF. Ended up with 16 miles to start out 2016.

Back to the real world. Thankful for 24 degree weather for the morning run compared to what the last few mornings have been like.

Early morning run with Kimi. A rare warm January morning I was able to wear shorts! Yes 36 degrees is shorts weather in my book.

Another warm morning run. Cloudy and a little windy bit I avoided getting rained on and was able to wear shorts so no complaints. Did 5 hill repeats on 2nd and 3rd hill.

Went out early with Kim, Dave, and Dan. Black ice on roads was very bad in some spots we debated bagging the run and not risk it. But stubborness/stupidity won out and we did our best. Headed to the west side of town in hopes the roads were better and for the most part they were. Ended up being an enjoyable run and despites some close calls nobody biffed it or injured anything.

Did 5 strides along the way. Trying to wake up those hibernating fast-twitch muscles. I'm not sure they are ready to wake up yet.

Early morning run with Dan and Alan. Roads had slick spots again like last week so we went out west again. Thankfully nobody biffed it or pulled any muscles.
