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- Ivins Park to my house. My Dad and I ran with Jake for a mile before we left him in the dust. Then at a water stop at 6 we ran into Jared Thompson's Dad.

Ran from our Hotel to Mill Creek Trailhead. I didn't really know where to go so I just ran around aimlessly on trails. I enjoyed it for what it was. I did not enjoy the 5+ miles on downtown salt lake roads. 10.24 miles

Had some partying upstairs neighbors at our Airbnb that kept us up until 3am. So my plan to get up at 5 and run changed. Also feel like I'm getting a sore throat....

Jogged a little bit from Devil's Bridge in Sedona to get the car to pick up Marieta. Then later in the afternoon drove to Fort Tuthill park and ran on the Urban trail into Flagstaff. I felt terrible the whole way but I grinded out 6.5 miles

AM- Ran some trails by Mount Elden. I still feel terrible and my hip was giving me issues in the early going. I knew I wasn't going to reach any peaks or summits so I just enjoyed the trails until I realized there was a dirt road right by my trail so I ran on that to get a quick easy mile. I tripped at one point and knocked the air out of me. Overall pretty bummed how my Flagstaff runs turned out. Hopefully I feel better soon. 8.22 miles 

PM- Redemption run? I still felt crappy from a sore throat and sleep deprivation. I thought it would be a good idea to get my tired legs out and try to run sub 7 minute miles. I figure it would be good practice for next week when I have tired legs towards the end of the marathon. I did a set of 3 miles sub 7, mile recovery, 2 miles sub 7, mile recovery. This morning I was freezing in Flagstaff at sunrise and tonight in STG I was burning up at dusk. 7.93 miles
