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 this race as a 10 mile workout because if I would have gone all out I probably would have ruined my chance of running fast for region track. So I just went out and ran a solid 10 and then waited for Jared Gentry and ran the final 3 miles with him. If I would have ran the complete race I would have run like a 1:23.

SUCK! I sucked it up at region! I was positive about running under 2:10 all day but when it came to crunch time I wussed out. I think I PR'd for the year but I'm still mad. I wanted to end my high school running career in a better way.

I'm going to take a week break and then get ready for Wasatch Back.

I'm back to running and it sucked! I allowed myself to get too fat and out of shape.
