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.

Tried to run a steady effort that was harder than I'd tried previously but not a strain in any way. Was amazed to settle in at 7:25s given I hadn't run sub 8:30 before. Splits per Garmin = 7:24, 7:25, 7:25, official time 23:08. Worked the last mile pretty hard up the hills and passed quite a few people but otherwise just ran steady and took it easy on downhills.
