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.

Was going to go to the gym, but when I started jogging there I decided to run instead. I didn't have my watch since I didn't plan on going running. So I just ran wherever I felt like and measured it tonight in our car with my mom. Ran for 1:45 and was hoping to get 15 miles because I thought that was 8 minute pace but my math was wrong and it ended up being 7:33 pace so I'm definitely happy with it.

Didn't sign up for the race which would explain why I don't know what place I came in, but it wasn't towards the front. Really didn't know what to expect coming into this race and wasn't too worried about time or anything either. Ran pretty much between 6:00 and 6:30 except mile 13 was in 6:37 and the mile I stopped for a bathroom break was in 7:20 and 1 mile in 5:57. It was fun to see a lot of people I knew at the race and talk to some people I hadn't talked to for awhile. Legs tightened up pretty good in the last 2 miles and was kind've upset the course was long, but considering the kind of shape I'm in I'll definitely take it. Great job to everyone who ran.

Went ice fishiing for the first time this morning. It actually wasn't as cold as I thought it was going to be so that was good. Ran 10 miles in 1:05.12, then jogged to 10.5 miles in 1:09. I was at the gym so i stopped to go to the bathroom after 10.5, then got back on the treadmill for another 20 minutes and 2.9 miles. Really happy with the first 10 especially last mile in 5:12, total time was 1:29 not including the bathroom break.
