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 mentally prepared myself last night for Sandhill. Then once I got out on it my back seized up and calves were super tight. I let myself get behind. Then I had to tell myself to stop being a baby and look for people catch and help. I tried to help Jenna as we got to the top. I ran 16:48 up which was better than last week. I thought I would crush it on the downhill but I felt nauseated (like last week). Still ran 8:29 down, so all in all I was happy with my efforts. 25:17 total Sandhill time. Ran with Carson and Gabe on the way back. 9.34 miles

My run was divided into unpredicted segments. I ran 3 miles with Marieta and was feeling sick. I went back out for another 2 miles and she went to work. When I got back home I realized Marieta locked me out. So I headed back out for a third time and ran all the way up to the Bluff Fabulous Freddy’s. Looking back I’m glad I got locked out because it forced me to run longer. 10.68 miles
