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.

Due to my knee issues, forecasted very hot temps in Grand Canyon, and Jansen being home to visit, Kim & I decided to bag the R2R and hike Loafer Mtn with Jansen instead. We had done this before a few years but forgot how tough it is! Thankfully knee is doing fine.

First real run in a week. Knee felt fine but in general I felt wimpy and out of shape.
