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--4 Tready Tuesday. This is the best way for me to get in a run on what is quickly becoming the busiest day of the week. Once again, I did an incline session at 3-4%.

pm--6.25 Anasazi to the Homestead w/ Tom and Fruity. Nice run. My legs felt better than they have in a few days. This was another week of everyday running, which I consider a success at this point. Another note, 4 days of the 6 were on the trails. Pretty heavenly week.

pm--12 Ran some trails on Gooseberry to do a pre-race check on the course markings for the Zion 100. The slickrock is a beater, and it was chilly up there. Should be decent weather for the runners this year.

am--9 Ran Guacamole--pretty cool trail--to clean up ribbons after the Zion 100. Started out as a pretty good run but ended up bogging down with the sheer bulk of ribbons. We had bags and bags and shirts full of the things by the time we were done.
