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.

a change in weather today, quite cool, mid--40s by the end of the run, felt like a lil colder though because of the ne wind and not being used to 40s weather. got out early and did a sore 6 miles, threw in 2 on 2 off fartlek pickups for a total of 9 min (last on being 1 min). just a little speed in the middle of the run to keep things fresh. total time 43:33, 7:15 avg pace
