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--7.5 Moe's via Zen. After a bummer week last week, I got out on the trails for a decent start to this week. It was cool and rainy, and the convo w/ Tom was fantabulous. I needed a run like this. Here's to a recharge.

pm--5 Nice run w/ the kids during the 1/1 workout. I started w/ Mia but dropped off of her after 7 to encourage others. I ended up jumping in w/ Liz a time or 2 and Mia a few more times. The kids are working very hard. Good things are coming.

am/pm--3 Miles at the State course. There was a nice drizzle, making the temperature nearly perfect. I could run on grass a lot more and probably should.
