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.

pm--3.75 Tuweap w/ Abigail, Aspen, and James. It felt a little harder today. I've backed off my mileage to "build" w/ the kids, but my body feels better w/ a few more miles a day. 

I will finish To Love as God Loves by Roberta C. Bondi. She is one of my favorite spiritual authors. Her work follows the thinking of the desert monastics from the early Christian era. Good stuff and a pretty quick read.

pm--3 An easy run to the ball fields and back. Kip work before and fresh-swing-speed strides after.

pm--3.25 First day of track. Small group of the commits. It's suddenly chilly in the afternoon.

I finished Art Spiegelman's graphic novel MAUS for the first time. Like a few other graphic novels, it felt a bit loose on plot and character.
