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.

AM- I struggled to run with the boys this morning. I lost the group on the uphills in Green Springs. I tried catching up but stomach issues were slowing me down. I compromised and ran with Gianno for a little bit. I stopped at Boilers Park to go to the bathroom. Then I ran 2 fireman hills where I ran into the big group of boys. I ran the rest of the way with them. So I guess things worked out. 8.54 miles

2+ mile warm up running up to the water tower on the Mesa before the race. 

So I started the Southern Utah Half and came out strong (on those crazy downhill miles). AM- My stomach was feeling a little off before the race started but I didn't think much of it. By time I got to Sullivan I had to go to the bathroom. I knew this was going to add some minutes to my chip time. I tried to make up for lost time but still had lingering tummy issues. By mile 6 I was over the race and took a right turn off the trail amd onto riverside. I took off my bib and just ran on the road to Bloomington. I didn't want the pressure of feeling like I was in a race anymore. My stomach was less of a problem when I slowed down. Then some old lady swerved over the white line and nearly killed me! Luckily I saw it coming and I was able to get out of the way. I swore up a storm after the full realization of the danger hit me. Hurried home and watched a great outing for PV at the D-Hells Invite.
