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 AC+/DI. The girls showed up a little early, so I didn't get my pre-run run in before we headed out. I did add a bit at the end though. It's all good. RHR--54.

pm--4 Got out w/ my neighbor who is training for the marathon. Felt like I needed to since I skipped the run after school and all the hubbub that that was. Felt decent tonight. Off to Herriman manyan.
