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.

good run today, did the 2nd and 4th mile uptempo. 6:07 and 5:57 for those two, not bad for this altitude and given my sickness lately.

decent effort tonight, 9.3 in 1:08:59, 7:25 avg pace. Consciously kept it slower, did the hilly loop too, so it was nice to put a good run together

was rolling along through 12.6, probably around 7:20 pace, then had serious side stitches again - just like the other morning, had to stop running because I couldn't keep going. was still 1.5 from home so walked/jogged as I could the rest of the way back. Kind of disappointing, but nothing I can do. total running was 13.5 with the jogging parts. total pace was 7:27 for 13.5 but that is with a super slow last mile given the walk/jog. still a good 12.6 before everything fell apart.

broke out the old red shoes today - didn't know how the trails would be after the 21 inches of snow we got yesterday - turns out they weren't too bad. 8.5 total at 7:23 avg pace, was probably overdressed as the sun came out during my run and drove the temp up to the high 40s

good run tonight, felt really good for 15, actually started feeling really easy. first four had a sideache - probably too hydrated. settled in after 4 and hit a good pace, started rolling at 7:18-7:22 and ended with 7:19 avg pace for 1:49:xx for the 15 miles, strides after
