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.

Sweaty, toothy, mucous filled run.  Loving it though.  Weekend sucked on call.  But now I have some life back.  avg 8:29 with buckets of sweat on this hot morning.

Nice run up Wheelers canyon/ icebox route.  Roughly 2.5 up and 2.5 down.  Tough tempo up for an old man who went water skiing at 630 am with little sleep from the froerer family auction the night before.  But Nick was a task master and kept me going.  Fun times.  Wasted the rest of the afternoon though.
