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.

First race as a colorado resident today. the denver broncos back to football 7k. Interesting choice for a distant. Started with the goal in mind of running 3:45 kms for the race and go was between 26:15-26:30. Felt sluggish the first 5k, then flew the last 2k (which was big downhill and helped a lot)--needed that turnover to get into gear later. splits (km):

1- 3:45

2- 3:45 (7:30, right on)

3- 3:47

4- 3:49

5- 3:54

6- 3:49

7- 3:22 (+6 seconds - must not have run tangents well as i had 7.04km

total - 26-19, 3:44/km pace, right where i wanted to be

reaction - was surprised with how tired I felt at the gun, but i hadn't really tapered or cut for this race, plus it was my first one at altitude since living and training here, breathing was heavy it felt like. opened it up well though at the end, downhill certainly helped, final mile was 5:39.1 according to my garmin. 5k was 18:41. Overall, it was fun to get racing again and it was very cool how they had us end on the field.
