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.

Our final run in Seattle. Came across a lush green forested area with some nifty trails and managed not to get too lost.

The hardest 11-miler I've done for a while. Down in St George and ran the Bearclaw Poppy Trail with Kimi as soon as it was light enough to not be treacherous. Carried 2 water bottles but wasn't really enough and I really died the last 5 miles or so. But Kim dragged me along to the end and all is well. Need to do some heat training it would appear.

Payson Canyon downhill. Didn't go well for Kim as she popped her calf muscle and had to power walk most of the way down. Luckily no hungry bears were out and about. Hope she heals up quick!
