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.

Pretty nippy this morning, started out sluggish but got feeling better as the run progressed. Later got to the gym for 30 min XT + core.

Went out just before lunch. Was hoping to see some sunshine but Mother Nature had other ideas. For excitement I did a few hill repeats.

Went out in the late morning work Kim. We tried out the yaktrax but ended up not needing them for most of the run. But they're pretty handy for the icy, snowy spots.

Drove up and did the Revolution Run at the Olympic Oval. Round and round and round we went. Plan was to do 48 laps which is close to a half marathon but due to some bad info from the timer chip computer dude we ended up with 49. Who knows maybe we even did 50. Felt pretty good especially towards the end.
