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.

Kind of stupid today, ran the first 3 miles in 6:47, 6:13, and 6:28. I stretched out a bit before running a 6:54 on the way home. Probably would have been better to run about a minute slower for all of those miles. I'll run again Thursday before my 5k and will just do 2/3 miles at no faster than 7:30 pace. Then Saturday is going to be fun. I'm not in amazing shape but I have been running a little.

Ran over to the recreation center and talked to some people. There was a kid trying to run under 18:00 for the first time so I told him I'd pace him for it.

I just stayed at 18:00 pace and he ended up running about 17:30! So that was exciting to see him hit his goal and win the race, I had a fun. Went on a cool down with him, apparently there's a track club here, he said they meet at 6 each night so maybe I'll run with them sometimes!
