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.

Paced a friend for her very first half-marathon. In fact, this is the longest she has ever run, having just started running last March. She really wanted to finish in two hours, but was afraid of trying, so I said I would run with her. Her garmin didn't work, which was just as well. I didn't want her looking at it. She ran well for the first 10 miles, then really felt the race the last three. It was a hilly course, and the steep hill at mile 11.5 was a grind. But, she did great, finishing in 1:54. 

Weather was 2* at the start. But, no wind so it really wasn't too bad.
