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--6 Barrel Roll in the evening. It's been a while, but, boy!, did it feel like home. I need the trails in my life. Also, got to watch the PV girls become region champs. That's awesome. It makes me miss coaching.

I finished my summer tome for the year, Gravity's Rainbow by Thomas Pynchon. It's funny, erudite, obscene. Thanks to the Reddit reading group for the summaries and discussions. Even though it's TP's magnum opus, it's 3rd out of 3 read on my list. But, then again, everyone says the 1st reading is just to let it wash over you. The real joy comes in subsequent readings.
