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.

Was planning on doing this race as more of a long run workout, originally planning on running the first 10 at marathon pace and then cutting down on the last three. Obviously that planned changed when the race started. Got into the first mile a little under 6:00 pace, but by mile 3 I was running low 5:40s and it felt easy. That's when I figured I could run under 1:15 without having to dig too deep. Pace held a little under or a little over 5:40 for the rest of the race. Felt very controlled up until the last mile when the effort increased some, closing in sub-5:30 pace for that mile. Overall pretty happy with how this went. Looks like I'm in better shape than I thought I was. This helped build some confidence of running under 2:30 for a marathon someday.
