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 WHP from HC. Cool fog, warm muggy sun mix. Felt pretty good--legs not tired after a lot of steps and some more intense running yesterday.

Nice shakeout run in cooler-than-expected sea breeze. Wildlife sighting: porcupine right next to the path.

Very slow with Gareth around Aunt Betty. Warm evening made it feel a bit more difficult, but 7.5 miles! Progress, progress.

Warm, felt meh, short, but this is the kind of run that will get me to RtB eventually.

Very warm and muggy. Around WHP/PH before heading to So ME. Got going a little quick for the conditions, eased back and averaged 8:22s in the end.
