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.

Did a bit of running up/down a scenic hill trail by a canyon on the south coast of Iceland and also ran 4.5 miles trying not to get lost in Harvarfjordnor, Iceland.

Last Iceland run with Kimi in the morning. Ran out to the LDS meetinghouse for the Rekjavik branch. Ran into the Elders preparing for 1st baptism of the year for Iceland and had a nice chat. Sure had a great time in both Denmark and Iceland.

First run in SF after our Denmark/Iceland trip. Thought I'd feel mega-sluggish with the jetlag factor and being back at elevation and feeling fat/out-of-shape. But surprisingly felt pretty good and quite enjoyed the run. I suppose the crash-and-burn will happen later.

Also got to the gym for 30 min XT + core.

Ran some hills. Probably the best I've felt all year as far as the hills went. Guess there's something to be said for the healing powers of going on vacation. Also went for a long walk just before lunch at work.

Five miles in the early morning. Ran into to Darin and ran a few quicker miles (for me not for Darin) with him. I'm certainly out of shape but my legs are feeling better this week than they have all year. Hope it's the beginning of a great training cycle looking forward to a 50 miler in 2015.

Early morning run with the few guys that showed up. Seems everyone is this group is gimpy, lots of stops, walking, taking it easy, etc. I didn't mind at all since I'm as gimpy as the next guy.
