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!
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.
