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- Ran the Capstone 50k course with my Dad and George. My Dad is pretty sure he has the course down. It took me a while to warm up. I slowed Ross and George down (which meant more recovery time for them). After the hard steep miles I warmed up. I wanted to do the loop twice (like the race will be). I even stored a kickstart energy drink at the start line to drink in between laps, to see if my stomach could handle it. Some jagoff stole it! I was pretty bummed. I went and bought a new one and ran a little extra just to do the experiment. Stomach was fine. 8.06 miles

AM- Ran the reverse loop of Capstone with Ross. I almost called the run off because of severe chafing yesterday. I took some preventative measures and survived today. I ran pretty well. The climbs and rocks still slowed me down but I ran the time I expected. I should be looking at a 1:52-1:55 for next week's race. 7.31 miles 

Reverse Loop:

1. 9:22

2. 11:26

PM- Hanging out with in laws and cousins forced me out for a second run. Ran Upper Graveyard to Cholla. It was getting dark and I only saw private property in front of me so I turned around. I had to cut through the desert and bush whack through some rough terrain. I barely made it through in the darkness. 4.02 miles
