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--5 Bombed out on the kids, helping students try to get in their end-of-quarter repentance. But then came home and ran up on the heights. The legs felt better. As of right now, no IT issues. I'll keep stretching and hope to avoid that post-marathon ache. Going to try to get out on the trail  a little tomorrow.

pm--5.5 Barrel Roll and Sidewinder w/ Tom, talking geology and mysticism and trying to dodge bullets. A lot of people out killing rocks today. Wore my IT brace for safe measure. The body's holding up.
