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.

My sister & I ran the Disney Wine & Dine Half Relay, it was awesome! I'd looked forward to running a Disney race for the past 5 years and it did live up to the hype.  This race was especially fun cause afterwards there was a post race party at Epcot with a free drink and $10 credit to use at Epcot's international food festival.  The food was delish, not your standard amusement park stuff.  They also had a few rides open for us- we rode Soarin' & Test Track.  Along the course they had characters and different entertainment and magical disney music, kept things exciting.  My sister ran the first 4.8 and I ran the last 8.3.  I averaged 8:51 according to my Garmin.  We came in right at 2 hrs which we were happy with considering this was our first half relay.  In hindsight I wish I'd kept a better eye on our overall time because I'm sure I could've brought us in under the 2 hr mark...next time :)
