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 sloppy slippery snowy run with Kimi to start 2017. Actually only ran about 4.5 miles with the rest coming in the form of walking and furiously shoveling snow. But at the end the Garmin said 6.2 miles so I'm calling it 6.

Lots and lots of shoveling snow. And I ran around the block a couple times so I'll count 1 mile.

Woke up to 4 degree temps. Very tempting to stay in bed but Dan and Dave and Kelly all texted and said they were going so we bundled up and ventured out. Since the wind behaved it actually wasn't too bad.
