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.

Out to the riverbottoms and back via canal road, I felt good at times and then not so good at times... It seems to be the general theme as of late and I'm just going to have to deal with it and hope that its a short term thing. My average pace was 8:49 with a total time of 1:29:33, I finished up with some lower and upper body weights and some push-ups. I hope to be more consistant next week.

See you Monday.
