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.

Out Past Gu Cornera nd down into the river bottoms, I fought a little rain and a little wind but all in all it was a pretty decent run for a change. I'll take this and hopefully I can work towards 20 miles in a couple of weeks. My average pace was 8:58 with a total time of 2:15:27, I just beat the 9 minute guy.

See you Monday.
