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.

Round and round and round 5 miles on the smallish jogging track on the Carnival Panorama. Last mile on the treadmill in the fitness center.

Final run on the Panorama. Today's run felt the best of all the ship runs, surprising since I've been chowing down like there's no tomorrow.

Back home. A few drops of rain but not too bad for January weather in Utah.
