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.

Divided up the miles between the boring treadmill in the ship fitness center and around the running track with 20-30mph winds when running towards and around the front of the ship.

Back home in SF. Legs and body weren't very happy to be running after working on my cruise gut the last week.

Hill repeats. Between my cruise gut and full moon waking me up at 3am I had no gas in the tank. Pretty wimpy workout.
