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.

In St George on a quite warm and muggy morning. Kim held out for almost 10 but played it smart/safe to keep the calf happy.

Nice Payson canyon run starting up closer to the top and ending in Salem. Awesome full moon at the start and nice and cool. Enjoyed the 17 miles down the canyon, last 3.5 on the flat and in the sun not as much. But good training for St George including the heat training.
