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—7.5 SC Reserve trails. We hit Black Brush and the front side of Barrel Roll. It’s been a while since I’ve been out there. Could make it a daily habit.

I finished Amazing Racers by Marc Bloom over the weekend. Quite a fascinating look at Bill Aris and FM cross-country. I wasn’t sure I was in the right headspace for a running/coaching book, but I’m glad I read it.

am—5 Same as Wednesday—Lutheran + Bank. I love these morning runs. They’re the perfect combo of moving meditation and then fun w/ the crew. Kaylee and I had a nice chat today.

am—5.5 State Course w/ some hill work and strides. The girls were digging. I think they were happy w/ how they ran at Murray. The early season work is showing, but there’s more to do.

am—2.5 Bank and back. Felt okay. The morning was beautiful.

pm—5 Some running while the kids did their hill circuits. My leg was hurting, especially up and down the hills. I took it pretty easy and salt soaked when I got home.

pm--5 Middleton to the hidden fish park and back. The way back turned into a stouter pace than was necessary. We need to work on that. 

I enjoyed an Infinite Summer of David Foster Wallace's Infinite Jest and finished the book last night. What an interesting read. Learned enough about AA and tennis to make me look into things a bit more. I really enjoy DFW's prose and essays, but this tome won't be a reread anytime soon. Really glad I took the time to read it.

pm—5 Loops at Scera Park. It was a run to help me remember why I love running. The weather was beautiful, and, for some reason, I love to run in the grass. Grass makes you stronger, driving and lifting.

am—10 Sugar Loaf out-and-back w/ a 15-min. tempo. The run was as great as the morning weather. I was able to hit the tempo w/ Adri and Brooke. I also gained a greater understanding of the relationships that running can build. I’m thankful for all it’s given me.

I finished How the Mighty Fall by Jim Collins. A quick business read that might keep a group from falling off the face of the earth. I like that Collins’s books lend themselves to many different intensities of reading.

pm--5 I turned w/ those racing tomorrow. My body was feeling beat up, and the stout pace, even those young ones were frisky, kept me honest the whole time.
