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--6 PH warm-up, 3 w/ the girls and, eventually, the girls and the boys to AC and back, and DI. I was a little ahead of the curve and wore a long-sleeve shirt. 

pm--4.5 Sandbergs w/ 4 x 200 after. The theme of the day is stout pace.  The last 200 was 35 sec. For me, that's pretty good.

pm--3.5 The last few days have been weak sauce. I have been congested at night, so, last night I took some Nyquil.  That led me from an early morning run to a super groggy snoozefest. Consequently, a run barely materialized this evening. But, the good news is that it did. Here's to an early one tomorrow.

am--6.5 Harts/AC/DI Well, I got up today. The run was good. The weather was better--cool and sweaty. I love the morning after a rain. The only bad part today was the wet-feather smell near Arbys. 

pm--4.5 Ran to the middle school and did 6 x wave hills. Nice little practice for the state course.
