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--5.5 Tuweap hill work w/ the varsity girls. Pretty impressive running from them.

pm--2 Success! In May, we got 2 pups. One is a Walker/Bluetick mix, and I'd hoped she would be a good trail buddy. I took her out this evening. She ran well, right on my heel. I only had to give a tug or 2 to keep her nose steady. She also seemed to handle the heat well. I'm pumped.
