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.

First part back and forth on road - boring

Last year I ran 28:21 and won my age group. This year I ran 26:12

I finally beat Pachev!

Except it was Sasha's 6 year old daughter! My amazing speed of my 54 year old body held her off and beat her by 1 second. I dont think Ill be able to beat her next year

Last year I ran 29:10 and placed 3rd in my age group. This year I run 26:22 and didnt place - oh well - at least I improved

First mile of race is downhill, 2nd mile uphill and 3rd mile downhill

Alexander my 10 year old won his age group, wish I could pace him like some of the younger fathers do, but still he does well and tries hard

I even ran the mile back and slightly uphill to the car after the race - first time Ive done that

My body was tired after running two 5K races in 3 days, still I ran today for over 45 minutes even with bad shoes. I feel good that at least Im trying to do more. Need to do better routine of stretching and develop a better running stick-to schedule. I wish it wouldnt get so hot so I could run more at lunch time - I dont do well nor do I like running in hot sun

I took James suggestion and ran in the morning when it is cooler. Luckily I could run this morning as I had to take Alex to docter appointment so I had time to run today, usually I have to go to work so early its hard to run in the morning but Ill have to see if I can do it my getting up early

I was rather slow this morning but ran 45 minutes so Im assuming I ran at about 5 miles
