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.

absolute downpour tonight, got hailed on 4 different times, and was a little nervous as to how close a few of the lightning strikes got. I wanted to get a 3 mile tempo in, so even though the streets were flooded and i was taking sloshing steps up to my knees in places in the street torrents, i still managed a very good workout. 6.5 total with 1 mile warmup and 2.5 cooldown, my 3 or actually after measuring (i had to run right in the middle of the road for most of it because of the flooding), so it was actually about a 5k. here were mile splits:

1- 6:03.2

2- 6:01.2

3- 6:02.5

total-- 18:06, 6:02 avg pace if this was 3 miles, slightly faster if it was a 5k, which it was probably closer to, either way a great workout given the conditions
