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.

4.65 miles am 39:17  ave 8:27  also ran 15 flights of stairs at the end of the run.

7.65 miles pm 1:07:57 ave 8:59  probably ran this a little faster by 2-3 minutes, had watch trouble.  The stair run in the morning really killed my legs, I struggled during the pm run, I guess that means the stairs are a good workout?

10 miles out and back from home.  1:19.51  ave 7:59   This was a good run.  I was hoping I could do this run, 10 miles a marathon goal pace.  It was an overcast day, probably 80's, this had to have made a big difference.  I'm getting sick of running in the 90's.  I felt fast and strong today, haven't felt this way for a while.
