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.

pm--11 Nearly let the headache I brought home talk me out of running, but got back to my running roots a bit. Threw on the music--Sufjan (Songs of the day are "Chicago" and the one about UFOs).--and went out after dark. Initially, I planned on 5 or 6, so I went out on the Canyons loop and ended up feeling good. Added a Green Valley loop.
