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.

8 miles on the trails above Thaphon Dam.  15 minutes faster than 8 days ago.  I had a motorcycle accident on the way to this run.  Cuts, scrapes on right knee, arm, shoulder and side of my face.  Badly sprained left thumb.  I went ahead and did the run before going to the hospital, knowing I'd be unable to do so due to pain the next day.
