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.

Nice Independence Day morning run. Felt good at the beginning but then hit the wall for some reason at mile 4.

Decided we should at least do 1 run in the Land of Fire and Ice. Beautiful run along the Reykyavik coastline in near perfect running conditions.

First canyon run in 3 weeks. Hopefully the legs haven't completely lost all muscle memory of downhill running. So far so good, tomorrow and next day will be the real test.
