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.

AM - 5 on sokol, 6:23 pace. really haven't felt that good since the first weight session a week ago; the soreness went away by like wednesday but my legs just never really got the spark back. hopefully the drop in pace this morning is a good sign.

AM - 5 on mural, 6:30 pace. felt like i had the training wheels welded on, maybe because my alarm didn't go off and i couldn't run until 10.

PM - 5 on hilton, 6:20 pace. felt like the training wheels are loosening off, maybe because we were blessed with a cool afternoon and i got to bask in a 75 degree heat index(for reference, the heat index at this time saturday was 106). i want to pretend this is fall coming early, but i know better.

sotd: this is how i disappear - my chemical romance
