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--7 Harts/Promenade/Harts. A little chilly this morning w/out a hat, but I survived. The middle section of miles was at a pretty decent clip--mid 7s I bet--because the girls were feeling good. I'm a little sore from the plyo stuff yesterday. PT Conferences later today. RHR--53.

pm--~4 more in the afternoon on Dino Tracks. I felt surprisingly resilient on this run.

am--6 Harts/AC/Harts. I woke up this morning w/ a headache but knew the kids would expect me this morning. So I got up and ran. What they say about running is true. It is a cure for almost anything. I feel much better. Looking forward to the time trial today. RHR--55.

pm--3 Some miles running around the school grounds before and after the time trial.
