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.

I'm still around! Been running only 12ish miles a week on average. I did gear up in Nov & Dec and trained and completed my first Ragnar Relay.  Miami to the Keys.  Wow- what an experience! So glad I did it.  Will I do it again? Not sure, lol.  However, we had a fantastic group of 11 ladies and 1 poor guy.  The memories are priceless.  I ran about 18 miles total with my 3 legs.  Our team averaged 10:29 pace which was actually good considering we got lost and didn't meet up at our exchanges on time at least 3 times. Plus we had a couple newbie runners and others of us who could've been in better shape ;-).  So I came home from Ragnar and didn't run much for 2 weeks after.  Ha! In fact I've only had a few workouts in the past 3 weeks.  NOW- tomorrow I'm running a local 8k (Melbourne Beach Marathon Weekend).  Have no idea what to expect for pace.  Would love to hit around 8ish, but it remains to be seen.  Wish me luck and Happy Running :)

Well...since I came in 1st in my age division....I'd have to say I loved this race, LOL :) It was on my daughter's BD and I didn't stick around long- had to get home for the festivities.  The race has a nice finish at Gleason Park.  Course itself is kinda boring through mediocre neighborhood.  But it's for a great cause, one that I'm on the board for...
