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.

PM - 3.5 miles outdoors on a chilly day - a longer run was planned, but some GI issues cut that short.

AM - with 23 friends and family staying at my house for Thanksgiving - we got 10 of them to run together for the ATC Thanksgiving Day 5k in Atlanta this morning.  Great weather and a nice time having all of my daughters running together with me and our house guests.  Nice event.

Happy Thanksgiving to everyone.
