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.

Went out just before lunch. Around 45 degrees with a bit of wind but lots of sunshine made it pretty dandy for a run.

Nice 6 miler mostly with Kimi in the mid-morning hours.

We just finished a big project at work and my boss sent all of us on the project an email telling us that beginning yesterday after lunch we were required to not show up at work until next Tuesday but still get paid. Unexpected 4 1/2 day weekends are nice. I like my boss.

Nice morning. A bitty nippy and windy starting out but near perfect after the sun came out. Ran about half the way with Kimi and Alan and the rest solo. Felt pretty good.

Since I have the day off work I decided to sleep in and go out later in the morning and go a little further distance. Weather was great much nicer than in the afternoon. Did 8 strides along the way.

Nice morning long run. Canyon wind was pretty nasty starting out but overall the weather was dandy. Ran with larger group for a while then last half ran mostly with Chad and Dan.

Got out just about the time the sun came out. Nice temps probably around 55-65 with just enough clouds and wind to keep it from feeling overly warm. Did 10 strides along the way.

Got in 6 miles early in the morning on one of those rare SF days where there was pretty much no wind. Later went to the gym for 30 min XT.

Nice morning for a long run even if it did rain a bit off & on. Ran with Kim and the guys a few miles then parted ways with Hal and Pat halfway up Harry's hill and did the last 7 miles or so solo. Glad to see that 7:45-8:00 pace is starting to feel more comfortable the last week or so.

Nice long run on a beautiful morning. Lots of runners out today it was great to see everyone. Ran with a variety of folks for 10 or 11 miles then did some solo miles. 

Headed to Ephraim/Manti now for the Scandinavian Festival and also for my 30 year HS class reunion. Has it really been 30 years? Dang!
