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.

Usual Saturday. I was a little stiff on the first few miles but then my legs seemed to loosen up and they responded really good for a change. I was stronger toward the end and I felt like I could have ran more. My average pace was 8:43 with a total time of 2:03:48, it was a good way to end the week with a really nice run with a lot of positives.

See you  Monday.
