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.

Had a great time running SGM with Kim today. Weather was perfect and the scenery was beautiful as usual. The only downside today was that Kim's knee acted up about half way through and she had to endure a lot of pain and slow things down considerably to take stretch breaks and run/walk to try to prevent a repeat of last year when she ended up fighting a major injury for months after the marathon.

She was a trooper and finished tough. I was proud of her and proud to have been able to be there with her the entire time. So far it appears that our efforts paid off and neither of us will be hobbled with any major injuries this time around.

I've listed the splits below. As you can see we were on track for about a 3:50 BQ finish for Kim before things went south around the mid-way point. Some of these splits are messed up since I did some fast running ahead now and then to fill up water bottles.

9:08, 9:10, 8:35, 8:25, 8:22, 8:07, 8:10, 9:53, 9:02, 9:55, 9:58, 9:28, 8:31, 9:53, 9:51, 8:20, 9:18, 9:10, 9:26, 10:28, 8:47, 8:42, 10:56, 10:20, 11:06, 10:55

Chip time: 4:09:12
