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.

Ran Loafer. Felt pretty good and was able to make it all the way to the gate without any walking.

Up and down Provo canyon with Dan and Ken. The uphill into headwind part wore me out. Couldn't keep up with the boys on the way back down.

Felt pretty good which was a bit of a surprise since I ate too much junk and didn't get full nights sleep.

Attempted once again to try and successfully run the Zen trail loop without getting mixed up and having to improvise. Was unsuccesful once again but everything ended well and I'm sure next time I'll get it right :)

Weather can sure change in a hurry! Back to winter mode with temps in the 30's with rain, wind, sleet, and snow. Funnest part was being pelted in the face with ice pellets.

Perfect weather for a morning run and not too much wind. Felt pretty dandy and was pleased to notice that my easy pace/mile seems to have dropped about 30s or so the last week or 2.
