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.

Hey Jake,

Don't know if you will ever see this entry. Was just reminding myself of your times and figured I'd check them out again...knew 2:30 for Boston but forgot your best. Checked out your results and pictures again...some of them through this entry. Nice site. I still say - WRITE THE BOOK! Just great information and great pictures. Came across one with you and Dad eating ice cream. He looks exactly like you (older version)! As always, hope all is well.
