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 6-miler with Kim just before lunch. Temps pretty dandy for running but a little breezy. Legs are feeling better all the time, maybe 70-80 percent recovered.

Late morning run on an absolutely beautiful fall day.  Ran about 4 with Kim and 3 solo. Starting to feel pretty darn good and mostly recovered from the marathon. Toward to the end of runs I'll maybe start to feel the lingering fatigue start to kick in and HR starts ratcheting up, but for the most part feeling great.  Plan on keeping the pace in the easy range mostly slower than 8 min through the end of October.

Dandy little 5 miler with Kim in the late morning.  Man it sure would be sweet if the weather could stay like this for a couple months or so.

First double-digit miles run since SGM. Went out with Kim at 6am to meet up with the SF crew. Not too many showed up today. Mostly ran with Hal and Kim joined in toward the end. Felt pretty good but the 12 miler felt too much like 20.
