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.

really good workout tonight, goal was a decent finish to this run, but i felt good through, splits were 7:02, 7:04, 7:11, 6:55, 6:55, 6:49, 6:55, 7:05, 6:49, 6:55, 6:56, 6:54, pretty even splits overall, felt pretty easy, it was MP so it shouldn;t have felt too hard, but i am high mileage this week so it was certainly an effort. 6:58 total for the 12 miles, 1:23:39
