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--10 Suicidal Tendencies. Lots of people at the trailhead w/ their sprinter vans and other high-dollar vehicles just to schlep their bikes a mile up the road. The clientele of this trail has changed over the last decade. Can't blame anyone for wanting to be on these trails, though. I took it easy and enjoyed my first double-digit run in a while. I also spotted Andrew and Jared, 2 good dudes.

am--6.25 Anasazi to the creosote w/ Cholla loop. I took Fanny the trail dog w/ me today for the Turkey Trail 10k. She did well until the last mile or so, except she picked it up drastically where we saw the bobcat about a month ago. There must be some strong cat scent down there.

Happy Thanksgiving to everyone. This year, I'm thankful to my wife who allows my running habit; Tom, my trail buddy; Fanny, my other trail buddy; xc peeps; and infinite books to read. 

It's been about a week ago, but I finished Postcolonial Love Poem, a poetry collection by Natalie Diaz.
