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--9 Sandhill Loop. I volunteered to lead the girls up. That thing is pretty tough when one is acting as sweeper. Made to the top on the heels of Jason and Gracie in 15:45--that's a watch stat--and down the other side in 10:16. I didn't really get into the downhill until I decided to break away from a group that was struggling a bit w/ the magnitude of the endeavor. Overall, good run. I feel beat as I type this.

am—6.5 Dirt-mile tempo. I jumped out of the group a time or two to let them work together on their own, and it gave me a chance to run w/ some other groups.

am—6.75 Grapevine our-and-back. Had a rattlesnake sighting. Luckily, it was in a docile mood.

I also finished Lord of the Flies by William Golding. Quite a read, survival, human nature, violence, and so on.

am—5.75 BHNP and river trail w/ barefoot striders. Either I’m getting older or beat down by the humidity or something, but the runs have been slower lately.
