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.

am--5 Up past the high school. Last week was a weird one in terms of running, so I felt a little sluggish this morning. It is good to get out early, though.

pm--7.5 Hit the hills--Anasazi w/ both Chipmunk and Cholla. Good sun, good run. As I drove around today, I wondered if it was a teacher workday because they needed parking at all of the local high schools for soccer tournaments.

pm--6 Anasazi basically to the homestead and back. It was chilly and windy, maybe 1 of 5 or 6 days that have felt like winter this year. 
 

I finished Their Eyes Were Watching God. What a great book. I love rereads.
