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 ran the 5K this year so that I wouldn't have to fight the crowds going up 900 East. It was a good choice.

I have backed my training mileage down to 40 per week lately, so I wasn't sure how I would race. But I'm happy with the result (18:31). This is probably a 5K PR for me as an adult. And the course is somewhat challenging with a net elevation gain. I was happy to win my age division. And it was fun to share it with family. My two oldest kids ran the 5K. My other kids ran the mile.
