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.

Enjoyed running the inagural St George 1/2 (mini) marathon. Felt better than expected given our casual training/preparation. Great course and so nice to be running in the cool pre-dawn air for those miles that are at the end of the full marathon.

Easy jog/walk to take it easy on legs/feet after the Saturday race. Feeling much better than expected given we didn't do a single Payson canyon run this year to prep the legs for downhill running.

Kim was doing a 50k-ish power walk today and I thought I'd join her for some of it. I'm coming off a couple days having a cold so wasn't exactly sure how far I'd go but I actually felt pretty good with 15. I don't usually include walk miles but this was pretty good pace power walking and I did get a few little run segments so we'll count it.

Still dealing with a cold and hacking cough but getting better. Did a test power walk with Kim 4 miles and felt pretty good. Might try a run tomorrow.
