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.

9 on a beautiful early october evening in 1:03:57, 7;06 avg pace

On a side note, in the last 7 days, i have run 72 miles, a new 7 day personal best for me and an average of slightly over 10 per day. Not even feeling it a whole lot, a little sore in places, but pleasantly suprised with my body's resiliency. taper starts tomorrow with a needed rest day before a 47-51 mile cut week, followed by a 28-34 mile pre-race week.
