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.

Today for the fourth of July I ran my first 15k, 9.6 miles.I was nervous because many people have told me that I should not be running more than a 10k because of how young I am, but I was here, I was signed up, i had a cool t-shirt, and suddenly I found myself on the front of the start line waiting to run with Connor Mantz standing right next to me! Yes, this race was run in Logan UT close to Smithfield, Connors territory, I thought to myself I am fine I just came here to run and lets see what happens. Bang the start on the gun and we all jump into action, like I predicted, Connor shoots out followed by three guys who looked like they just came from the Olympics they went out so I started to pace myself with a group of two kids.

Because it was nine miles it was boring just because of running for so long, still it was a beautiful run in the canyon. Towards the the last three miles, the two kids surged ahead that I was with and got a 400m lead. I did not have enough gas in the tank to catch them, but as I came around the corner, I saw the finish line one mile away and it was all downhill. I then made my move and started to push, I started to pick up speed and continued, I caught one of the kids with the other still 100m away with 400m to go, I sprinted and did a Ben Saarel kick and caught the last kid and created a 20m gap before crossing the finish line at 1:01:25. I did not break one hour shoot. Connor came in 48:12, that is pretty dang fast. This shows that I need to not doubt myself( I do that a ton) and to really work hard because there will always be someone better than you.
