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--7.75 Moe's Valley loop w/ Andy and Tom. It was a great run w/ some talk of Stamets and other necessary things. RHR--64. (This is interesting. I do feel beat down, but it's not all physical.)

pm--6 Barrel Roll in reverse w/ Blazin' Ben. I was a little jittery at the beginning. Tomorrow will be a nice day off for me.
