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--9 Hospital w/ some pickups. I really enjoy this crew. 

I finished The Hanged Man of Saint-Pholien by Georges Simenon. It was a quick detective read, and I didn't see the end coming. Maigret is maybe a top-10 detective for me.

pm—7.5 Warm and cool w/ some counterclockwise grass. Ran more than I thought I would. There’s something “coming in the air tonight.” Long drum fill and auto tune reprise. We’re Phillin’ It at PVXC.

am--7 A run up the path along the wash on to SC Parkway. I felt pretty good today, all things considered. After, I drove to Cedar to watch some old PV kids run in college. That was fun.
