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 Foremaster. Cool, nice morning. Fall has arrived in Southern Utah. Ran a little in the afternoon, but nothing to record. 

I just finished Coyote America by Dan Flores. It was a great read, part history, part mythology, part ecology. It reminded me I haven't seen a coyote in a while.

am--2.5 Bank and back. Felt a bit more relaxed this morning. 

pm--5.25 Nice run on the old Dog Pound route. It's been years since we've run here. It used to be an old tempo (AT) route we would do almost weekly. We decided on the State squads. It's always hard to tell kids who are equally deserving that they don't get the opportunity to race. One of the tough parts of coaching.

am--3 Easy miles, just enjoying the movement. I did 2k on the erg after. 

pm--6.5 Got some miles in while the girls did their workout. A plus was the 6:22 mile on the track while I was tempoing against the grain. I feel pretty fit except for the aches and pains of an aging body. 

I finished a short novel, The Wave: the classroom experiment that went too far by Todd Strasser, a student recommended to me. It's a quick read and an interesting look at an experiment a teacher used to teach students about the momentum in a fascist movement. It's based on a true story from the life of Ron Jones.

pm--7.5 Old Morning route w/ some variation and a few strides at the end. It was nice to cruise around w/ some Modest Mouse and Built to Spill on the buds. On another note, I nearly broke one of my segment records on Strava. One second off!!!
