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.

Iceman 2021

First race of any kind in 2 years. Iceman 2019 was my last. Rode my guts out. I had no idea I could ride at that high a heart rate for that long. Gorgeous weather and the course was much drier than 2019. A good bit of sand, but decent lines were established. Course was very fast. I was right at 13MPH on the fatbike. Most of the team guys were 15-16 MPH on hardtails and full suspensions. The pros did 20MPH.

Thanks, Tom. It was nice to mildly compete again. Hope you and family are well.
