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.

Salem Days 5K route extended, I just tried to do my best. I got into an altercation with some guy that almost hit me... He had the guts to come back and tell me to get off the F$%king road... I told him to get his F%$king Fat ass back into his truck before I kicked it. I think I shocked him because he did just what I asked... later on in the run he found me and I thought I'm dead! I had noi weapon and I'm sure he duid. He pulled beside me and actually apoligized and I did also for my language so it all worked which was nice. My averege pace was 8:43 with a total time of 54:03, it was an eventful run. I might need to get me a little 38 Special to tuck in my tights, you never know now a days...
