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.

The past few days I have had a sore throat and a cold, kind of feveish and chills. I don't feel much like going out in the cold today and running. So I took the ball baby way out and did some time on the eliptical and 25 min of core strenghting. I hope tomorrow I will begin to feel better. Catch ya latter.

Still not feeling very well with my cold, but I needed to get outside for a run today. Very slow and easy just tryed to get it in and enjoy. I did see a big herd of elk in the riverbottoms. My guess about 50 to 75 head and a big bull. It was kind of cool to see. I did get in some core strenghtening also, and finished with 200 crunches. I hope tomorrow My cold is feeling better.

My cold is still hanging on, all though it is no worse. My run today took me up around the golf cours, the roads were alot better today a few snowed packed areas but for the mosr part snow free. The sun was out nice and brite and I only needed one layer and a vest. I ran in shorts today, kind if weird with a couple of feet of snow on the ground. It was nice and comfy run today. I did see the herd elk again they werefurther east and just west of the golf course today. I should be pulling out of this cold in the next day or two,cross my fingers.

Not as warm as yeaterday but still nice weather for a run. I did the bishop storehouse route today kind of felt a little on the sliggish side, but a very enjoyable run non the less. The elk are still in the river bottoms, not as many though. My cold is still hanging on just more of a hassel than anything. I am on the 7th day of having it so hopefully in the next couple I should notice a great improvement. It has been a great day and another great run.
