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--10 Did about 4 warming up and cooling down w/ the girls, sandwiched around their awesome wind mile. Belief is at an all-time high. Got right home and jumped on the tready. (What can I say? I'm sick of the cold for the day.) The last 15 minutes of the run was a progression from 7:30-6:55. Felt pretty good. I would really love to do some experimentation w/ stronger, quicker stuff. RHR--50.

am--6.25 Lutheran Loop/Bank/Reverse Costco. It's cold outside, yet nothing soothes like a morning run. It's fun to hear the girls get so excited about an upcoming race. Watch out, world. RHR--49. 

pm--3.25 Green Springs toward the church. My legs are a little dead.

am--6 Lutheran Loop/Scary Bushes/Reverse Costco--the building blocks for a good morning. I do have to vent a moment and say to those people singing Christmas songs, putting up Christmas decorations, and killing geese: "CHILL! Be thankful." RHR--48. 

pm--3.5 Some running w/ the girls between their 400s.

am--5.5 Truncated morning run. I'm dragging a bit. Don't know why. RHR--53. 

pm--2.5 Short shakeout in Flagstaff. The girls were caroling at the top of their lungs. One of those moments I'll remember for a lifetime.
