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--3.5 Run on Sunset w/ some extra w/ Ben.

pm--4.75 Vineyard w/ Abigail and Redfearn. People disappear after runs start. It's disheartening. 
 

I finished a great book about fishing, loving, and philosophizing--The River Why by David James Duncan. He's a great regional writer who should have more acclaim. Maybe, he needs to write more.

am--5.25 Up to the Canyons by my lonesome. First cold morning of the fall.

pm--4.75 Vineyard w/ 6x pickups. I ate a bowl of creamy soup and a few breadsticks minutes before. My stomach is transforming.

I finished Run to the Top by Arthur Lydiard and Garth Gilmour. I don't think Lydiard has it all right but he has more right than anyone else.

am--4.5 Met up w/ Ben and discovered a couple tempo loops. Nice chatting w/ home. Seems like good things are happening in his life.

pm--5 Sidewinder. It's been a while since I've climbed up there. On the descent, I saw a hound dog that looked almost like my Fanny. This dog was a little tamer.
