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.

St. George 1/2 Marathon. 1:43:05. 7:52 AP. 7th in M55-59. 200 OA field. 142 Gender. Nice, clear and sunny day!! Nippy at the start at about 34 degrees. Gradually warming throughout. Felt pretty decent. Calf nearly 100% and wasn't a factor. Hammies threatened a couple of times, but nothing materialized. Definitely need to get more stretching in. 6 minutes faster than last year. Tooele Running Club had 25-30 runners running today. Rick ran 1:30:15, good for 5th in M25-29. The kid has only been running since March.
