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 stats from last year were 50 books, 125,928 feet gained, and 131 trail runs for 1,721.75. Not a bad year, going into my mid-40s. The trails were a lifesaver.

pm--7 Full Rim circuit. My fav trails. The trailhead was bursting at the seams. Can't figure out why a Saturday afternoon the week after MLK would be so packed. Do people even work anymore. Everyone seems so mobile, and I just want to stay in my neck if the woods.
