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.

Pretty good workout this morning, especially considering I was feeling sore from lifting yesterday. I did 3 miles over to Zion's Bank in 30 minutes, mostly running, then walked to Ace and back to the Splash pad, another easy mile to 500 North. Decided to try a mile tempo run just to see what I could manage. Ran 7:33 from the light to the cow field. I ran 7:29 a few weeks ago, but this was actually a better effort considering how many miles I had ran before. Did 1 mile walk home.
