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.

Hiked Grand Canyon rim-to-rim north-to-south with Kim and a group of 15 others. Last few miles were brutal but the incredible views made it worth it. Hope to do the south-to-north rim hike next time.

4 miles mostly walking but enough jogs mixed in to count 1 mile of running. Pretty beat up after the GC hike.

Getting closer to fully recovered from the rim-to-rim 24 mile hike. But in general feel a bit fat and out of shape and running isn't all that fun. Hopefully with some running consistency and better eating over the next few weeks I can get back to where the daily runs feel more easy & relaxing.
