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 Out-and-back to Sunrise Tire via Harts. Decent morning run. I am ready for the autumnal mornings, but, apparently, they're not ready for me. RHR--50.

pm--2 A couple miles setting up and taking down the course for the time trial. The kids ran well. I think they're chomping at the bit to race again. I know I'm excited to watch them run.

am--7 Usual morning route in SC. It was nice out, but I was dragging. My body never got into the groove. Nevertheless, what felt like a slog ended up being a decent clip. RHR--56.

am--6 Fartlek Work on the new State Course. We ran the course w/ a map, trying to find our way, flipped it, and hit 1, 2, 3 min. fartleks at just faster than race pace. The first few felt good. Needless to say, the girls kicked my butt on the last few. They really pushed. I'm so pleased by their effort the last 2 days.
