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--2.5 Bank and back. We went a bit later this morning. I'm grateful.

pm--6 Hospital run w/ some race-pace fartlek work. On top of that, tonight was my final xc banquet. I will miss the xc crew. So much love and character in those people.

Over the last few days, I've finished The Tragedy of Hamlet Prince of Denmark by Shakespeare and Touching Spirit Bear by Ben Mikaelsen. Both good books, one full of timeless quotes, one full of native wisdom.
