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.

Payson canyon up/down run with Kim but this time we went up the canyon a bit further to get more of the steep sections. On the way down we ran into a bunch of cows (and cowboys) heading up the mountain. Fun stuff!

Had a fun time pacing this race. The mountains were beautiful starting out. Got a bit warm towards the end. Very well organized race and a great cause. 

Later Kim got the wild idea to go run the SF river trail as today was the official grand opening. So we got a few more miles in the hot sun in the late morning!
