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.

Awesome run up to Rocky point with Matt this AM. Trail and temps perfect out. Fall is almost gone.. Although about 1.5 into the climb a branch had gotten blown down into the trail from the wind storm last night and jausted me right in the shoulder..ouch. It was dark and I was paying attention to the light.. Sweet sunrise.
