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. had to get up pretty early, race started at  8 and was a little bit of a drive, noticed I had forgotten my watch, so I stopped at a walmart on the way to get a $10 one so I had something to judge my pace on, race started a little late. My warmup had been good and my pre-race this week had been superb. gun went off and it was just one other guy and me, we talked a little during the race, he was a collegiate runner and a miler, so I knew to beat him, I'd have to run a good race. First split was 5:11, but we both agreed this marker was short, 2nd marker was 10:33, probably still short, he started gapping me at this point, I couldn't cover it, last 1.1 was long--although overall, I think the course was spot on 5k. crossed the line in 17:19, very happy with that pace--nice to get a solid race in and to continue improving my times. 5 and change for the cool down, 10.2 total today, solid overall
