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 Pizza Hut and the bank. Real skeleton crew today. Many folks seem to be diving into their break.

pm--1.5 Literal trash run around Costco. Addi organized a clean-up project for a class assignment. It was a blast picking up trash and looking for outlanish items. 

Yesterday, I finished Draft No. 4 by John McPhee. Amazing. I love his writing. Perhaps, no subject exists that he couldn't spruce up and make appetizing.

am--1.5 Weights and neighborhood. Chill and fun. Had some trash talking among the boys about who might take the Dream Mile title this year. 

pm--5 Good run w/ some uptempo running and even some "race pace" stuff. It might actually be fun to train for and race someday again. We'll see how my lower legs feel tomorrow.

am--9 Run up the SC Parkway. I started out slow and let things naturally progress. Ended up being a good run. I feel pretty fit even if parts of me are broken down.

am—7.5 Happy Thanksgiving! I ran from near the mall to the cemetery in Orem and set one foot or so on the MCT and flipped. The morning was overcast and warm, so I was a bit overdressed. (I was expecting low 20’s and snow.) I’m thankful for family, friends, running, reading, and so much more.
