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.

Kinda! I am taking it slow, my knees are in rough shape since I injured myself marathon training two years ago. I got some Newtons and I will see if they help! Thanks for checking in :)

By the way, just got a job for University of Tennessee! Moving to Knoxville this summer. SEC!

it's always tough coming back from injury, but little by little, you'll be back (i've been in a similar state, just not due to injury...)

awesome about the job at UT knoxville! gotta love the SEC... i'll have to come run some races up your way... (and you should definitely come run the nashville ultra or stump jump... or the rc mooonpie 10-miler....)
