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.

Drove up with a group of runners up Payson Canyon.  Not ready yet to run the entire 11 miles steep downhill so Kim & I got out part way up and did a little-bit-up/mostly-down run ending up in town. Nice way to start the day!

Six in the morning. Warm and muggy today! And of course breezy.  Felt a bit sluggish toward the end.

Warm and muggy this morning, but no complaints as I'll be delighted with any rain we can scrounge up this summer.  Nice to see a pretty good group out this morning for a change.  Ran with a variety of runners and helped Kim get in some tempo miles.
