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.

I ran the Salt City Mile in Liberty Park today. My foot was hurting a little before the start and I wasn't feeling very energetic, but otherwise, I felt good. No soreness from the half marathon. I started out pretty well, 69 for the first quarter. The next quarter was about 73 or 74. I got kinda tired in the third quarter and slowed down a little. In the last 400 my lungs and heart felt weak. But I still had a good finish. I had 4:52 on my watch. That's a pretty good PR. 5 seconds! The chip time was a bit messed up, so I'm just going with my watch time. Overall it was a good race, my legs didn't feel very tired afterward. I think it was my lungs and heart that limited me.
