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.

My high for Saturday is 68. Not sure where that came from, but maybe you should head up here for a run this weekend.

That would be great. I'll hop on my jet and .... wait, spouse has us scheduled to attend a wedding Saturday. Maybe next weekend.

Thanks Matt for reminding us how miserable it is running down here in the south!
Just wait until January and we'll be sending you arrogant messages!

I was hedging on those mid January comments.. :) I'm currently attempting to fix my treadmill. Not looking forward using the darn thing.
Tom - have fun at the wedding! Hey, I'll be as far south as Lincoln, NE next weekend..
