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.
Had a bit of anxiety and a lot on my mind after arriving at work from the airport after seeing off our youngest son as he headed off to Thailand for a while. The weather was beautiful so decided to go for a short run to enjoy the day and clear my head. Felt pretty klunky the first mile but then I loosened up and felt better. No watch today so don't know or care about my pace, don't imagine that I broke any speed records
Met up with Chad, Hal, and Pat on a clear cool morning with an ice-cold canyon wind! Could never get very warmed up, wind-chill was probably around freezing. Took it very easy with lots of walking breaks.
