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.

AM - 5k in the rain with Finn from the remnants of Hurricane Michael. Still feeling fatigue from the race on Sunday, but Finn really needed the exercise.

I was curious if anyone else on FRB would run in the rain with me. Good to see I wasn't alone. Memorable.

LOL - it really was not that bad. As you said, I have run in much much worse conditions. Good to see you got out as well and enjoyed yourself.
