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 Moe's w/ Tom. Some sweet dude warned us off the trails due to a hundred-mile bike race. As if bikers weren't already the bane of a runner's existence on the road. Now it's moved to the trails.

pm--6 Old Swiss Days route via Canyon View. It was nice and ponderous. Running and I have been on the rocks recently, but we decided to give it another go. We talked (flirted?) and even grazed fingertips. There was a spark of the old magic, so I decided to blog again. I was of a mind to just stop blogging in hopes that I would just run and enjoy it, but there's been a change in plans. This will be a good chance for me to start developing some values w/ this running thing.

am--4 Truncated morning run. Down to Dixie Drive and back courtesy of Country Lanes. Shorts and no beanie this morning. 

pm--5 Got out w/ the girls, plus Frida's back for a little vacation, on the Sandberg's loop. Followed that w/ 4 x 200 @ :37-38. Those were harder than I remember. Either that or all of the girls are getting faster.

pm--4 Ran from my parents' to home after some good ol' fashioned Easter eggin'. Felt pretty good other than the gut bomb from green chile mayo. Did some gawking near the high school, looking at the stars and the silhouetted landscape about. It's like Bill Walton says, Utah is a beautiful place.

am--7 Tom and I hit the Moe's loop w/ slight variation on the way back. It was a beautiful morning. Tom's already seen a few snakes this year out on the trails, so he was a bit less inclined to exploring tight trails.
