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.

am--6 Back to practice. Dirt mile for a tempo. I ran with a good group of girls, just behind the top girls. It was a nice overcast day. Carli pushed steadily and was a great goal for the other girls, but I still can't seem to figure out how to keep a group of girls together while running a bit stronger. Then I screwed up and didn't tell the top girls that their time was up. Good to be back. Bad to be a space case. RHR--49.
