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.

9 miles (8:38 avg. pace) - Felt solid throughout.  I think the most recent changes made to my pacemaker might be just what I needed.  Running is starting to feel normal again after struggling since the pm install last summer.  I hope this run wasn't a fluke.

5 mi on TM (8:40 avg), felt normal, but legs are getting sore with strength training.  See how they feel tomorrow, might need a rest day.
