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.

I just got back from a weekend at a friends cabin that I roofed and while I roofed, my kids rode the atvs around until they both ran out of gas.  I just got back and no I didnt run.  I was going to but there was a Bear spotted in the area and I dont like running with a loaded gun in my hand.  I count it as a high altitude breathing exercises.

I was so freakin busy this morning playing the carpool guy and then returning shingles and checking on jobs etc.  I really wanted to try to get in 10 this morning but it wasnt going to happen. I ended up doing it late tonight around Daybreak temple.  Nice and cool temps and it got dark quick.  Lots of people I recognize waved to me before it got too dark.  I can only imagine what conversation goes on when I run past them. "There goes that skinny guy again"  When my neighbors stop to talk to me they always ask if Im worried about my weight and I act like im obsesed with my weight with responses like I feel really bloated and chubby!  Do I look like im taking on weight a bit to you? Be honest.  lol

I was extremely tired this morning but have seemed to kick my migraine. Finally. I ran with Trick this morning at 5:15 from my house down around and up and over to Daybreak and down and over and straight and over and down and over and over and finished with 12.5 big ones.

I ran with Misty, Charity and Trick this morning. Started at Tricks house and got onto the park trail and ran 10.5 out and back.  They were having an aided long run on the trail so I got to get water and gatorade  along my run which was nice.  It seems like the miles that Trick was having a  hard time on went by quicker when we struck up conversation. She can easily talk while running even better than me.  At mile 17 I took off on my own and did 1 mile tempo in 5:38 and then jogged a mile and then hit mile 19 and did a 1 mile tempo in 5:50. That mile had some head wind.  I then jogged 1 mile and then did  a .25 mile sprint.  Then I ran back to Trick and she was only .75 miles back and I ran in with her to get my 22.5.  

I feel great, I had some shin splint problem when I started but it dissipated.  Time for an Ice bath

Now Ill leave you with the Disney goodbye theme.  MIC See you real soon! KEY Why? Because we love you! MOUSE!  Ill never grow up!
