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.

I finished a detective novel by Manuel Vázquez Montalbán, Off Side. I’m a sucker for these books. Holt and I also partook of some K food w/ Mr. Fielding.

am--7.25 Pacework at the elementary school. This is one of my favorite workouts. It's a chance to get the legs moving in small doses at the beginning of a season. 

pm--1.5 Run into the neighborhood after weights and AIS.
