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.

Had a great time pacing the 2:20 group at the Snow Canyon half with Kimi. Perfect weather and breathtaking scenery as always. Definitely one of my favorite races.

60 minutes on my newly purchased Elliptical machine. Forgot how much this workout gets my heart rate up and kicks my fanny! Figure it will be good to do something non-pounding on some days and give my legs a break.

Elliptical. Winter has arrived. Couldn't bring ourselves to get out and endure the cold and wind for a run.

A bit windy but not as cold as expected. Bad news was Kim tweaked her calf with a fluke injury running across some grass :(

Elliptical. Good thing too as it was pouring rain, happy that it worked out to buy the new machine when I did.

Center St hills. Nobody else showed up today and Kim is resting the tweaked calf so I was all by my lonesome. Temps in the high 30's and not much wind so it felt pretty good for late Nov.

Six miles down at the HS track mostly with Dan and some with David. Winter time has certainly arrived.
