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--9 BHNP Workout. The workout was a mixture of tempo, 8k, 5k, and 3k paces. The girls packed really well and chipped away at the 25%. On a personal note, it was fun to see that I could stick in there and run a workout w/ this crew. I love working w/ these kids and wouldn't want to be anywhere else. RHR--50. 

pm--7 Hit the BHNP again for the guys' workout. I jumped in on the warm and cool and got some miles while they were rocking it. Both groups looked strong today. Building confidence. On another note, I'm spent.
