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 indoors this morning at the AFFC. The cost was $3.50 for each of us, but that seemed easier to swallow than running outside when the temperature was only 3 above zero. It wasn't nearly as crowded as I expected. I pushed it fairly hard at times, either to keep up with someone that had jumped in for a few laps or just because I felt good. Saw Eldon G. and waved, but didn't have a chance to talk to him. Laureen worked on the elliptical and the treadmill.

Ran indoors in AFFC. Felt pretty good over all. Had to contend with some kids playing soccer on the track for the first twenty minutes or so(collided with a couple of them as they'd just dart off without looking where they were going). A little knee soreness after the run.

Ran indoors at the AFFC because of the poor air quality. I didn't know if I'd be able to run on that small of a track for that long, but with some music, I was able to get into a zone where I didn't much notice the passage of time. I talked with a kid getting to go on a mission off and on for the first half hour which helped to pass the time. I wore my heart rate monitor and pretty much kept my pace in the marathon range. The last ten minutes or so, I pushed the pace fairly hard and still felt good when I finished.
