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.

am- 25 minute shakeout run followed by breakfast and AP US History test. finished at like 12 and then we drove up with coach. 90 the whole way and we barely arrived in time

8pm- Herriman invite- 800m/ also 4x400

it was pretty toasty at the meet. me and julien went for a 5 minute shakeout(in my sick new pegasus) because of the long car ride. then we drained and went and warmed up. got back right in time to go spike up and get a couple stride outs I took my caffiene gel but i was supposed to take it like a half hour before. goal for this race was sub 2 and state q.

I started out good and out in front the first 100. The other guys moved around me a bit and I settled in like 6th place or so. the leaders hit a pretty quick first lap  and had a decent gap, not much of a pack going on. my 400 was right around 60 i knew i would need to hit the turn hard. At 450 I was moving pretty good and on the back straight I opened up and started passing. The front 2 guys were still like 25m in head i think but I was catching them. I kicked at 200 left. from 150 out I closed on the northridge kid and on the finish straight I tried to pass him on the outside but he was all over the place. i dont think he was trying to cut me off but he did and I was too tired to get another big move to get around him. just kept pushing till I crossed the line right next to him it was close.

after i finished my teamates came up and were all saying like way to go dude you got it you broke 2 and i felt so good. I still waited to see the official time though, 1:59.4. To someone just watching a 159 isnt crazy good or anything and even to me I still know I can do better. but just the feeling of accomplishing an important goal- even a small one- is something i havent felt in a long time. Julien beasted in his heat and ran like  2:03 haha i knew he wasnt a 207 guy.

I drank some chocolate protein but then I remembered I still had the 4x4 in not too long. cooled down and ran through some sprinklers. got a shirt for being top 6. for the 4x400 it went colin me macen and samson. That was my first time doing a 3 turn stagger. Colin was slow on his leg (55) so I started out in last. I was pretty strong in the middle i passed 1 guy or 2 i cant remember, but my last 100 was pretty weak I was beat ended up a 54 or something. me and macen nailed the handoff. redemption. he ran a 53 and Samson brought us home in like a 52. not a state q but good attempt. after the meet we went to the hotel, got some shiz to eat at the gas station because the garbage wendys employees decide to close an hour early. chilled in the lobby for a while and then watched the end of Nikes breaking 2 marathon attempt. Kipchoge close but not quite, still legendary. what a great day man
