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.

Instead of a running Kim and I decided to make the most of our play day down in So Utah and hike up to Observation Point in Zion NP. What an awesome place we live and weather was near perfect! We also checked out Hidden Canyon on the way down so ended up with around 10 miles hiking total.

Still in St George so we I got some work done early then after the sun came out we did some trail running (ok plenty of walking too on the heavy uphill and treacherous parts) near the condo up/down the Zen trail. Another beautiful morning we both enjoyed the whole experience immensely.

Back in Spanish fork and running on asphalt. Surprisingly it was even warmer in SF in the morning than it was in St George.

Experienced the joy of Loafer Mtn for the 1st time this year with Dan and Ludlow. A bit nippy right around freezing.

Will be traveling on Saturday and was looking like weather Friday morning could be nasty so decided to get a longer run in.

Weather not so bad as predicted I was overdressed. Legs a bit tired today as to be expected after Loafer on Wed and long run yesterday. No runs until Monday should give me plenty of time to recover. Looking forward to trip to Seattle!
