Would love to eventually break 23 minutes for a 5K...or even around 22 minutes. That may entail some weight loss on my part. Planning on another half in November...and hope to break my PR.
Just the facts...
Running Experience: Very little...4 years
Married for 10 years. Have a 4 year girl from Korea and we're bringing home a little 3 year old boy from Vietnam soon.
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.

Ran 3.25 this morning with my wife. Time was around 34 minutes. Best weather in months...about 70s degrees...light wind and low dewpoints.
Ran another mile in 7:25...then a slow .25 back to the car.
