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.

Second straight Saturday doing longest run of the year. Felt pretty good I think maybe the endurance is coming back.

Nice run down Payson canyon on a slightly nippy morning. Today was the 'running of the cows' so we had to dodge a few bovines on the way up the mountain for the summer. Today was also the first day we drove all the way up to the top.

Similar route as last week. But for whatever reason I felt pretty horrible much of this run. Last 5 or 6 miles were a death march. Time for a back off week next week I'm thinking.

Had a great time pacing the 2:00 gang at the AF half marathon. Canyon was beautiful and temps were cooler than they've been all week about perfect. Lots of runners around 2500. One of the best run races around that donates a bunch of dollars for a great cause. Cancer sucks!

Nice Payson Canyon run. Took it a little easy to be nice to the legs and ease into the running all the way back down to Peteetneet.
