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.

So I came to a realization today. Over the last little while, I have forgotten that running is only about ME. I have started to think in terms of me and other runners, and comparing myself to them. This has been really bad for me because I realized that these comparisons have made me discouraged and unmotivated to run. I need to remember that no matter what there will always be someone faster, stronger, or with more endurance then me and that I just need to run for ME! sorry, that was just me little heart to heart talk I had with myself! :D

The run today. Felt really good! We got rid of more of the walking. Once again I repeat that Dani is the awesomest running buddy ever! She pushes when she doesn't want to and she has a really good pace, I don't even think my pace would be this good by now if she wasn't with me! I think I found a born runner who never knew she could run! :D After the run though I felt SUPER sick! Almost like I was going to throw up! I can't have any more SUGAR cause I remember how sick it makes me!
