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.

Ran up to Vivian Park with Paul, Nathan, Wayne, Kevin and Larry. Kind of took it easy on the way up, but pushed it a few times on the way down. Got in three miles at sub 7:40 pace (around a half mile at 6:30 pace) trying to catch up with Paul and Nathan.

Ran the temple route with Laureen when I got back home. I was a bit sore starting out, but felt OK by the end. No lingering aches or pains to speak of.

Leg 2 of WBR. Average pace was 8:42. Mostly a gradual uphill. Passed close to 20 runners. Got passed about five times.

 Leg 3. Didn't wear my watch so I don't know my exact pace. Felt pretty good for the final leg. Didn't get passed by anybody and passed 15+ runners. Started to rain hard just after I finished.
