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--2.5 Nice, easy run to the bank and back.

pm--7 Into the fields for a run w/ a progressive build. The effort was there even if the pace doesn't show it. After, we ordered state rings. I've been blessed to be a part of something so awesome.

am--5.5 Funky route past the Lutheran church to the sign w/ the bank-and-back added. Decent morning. Not many kids showed up. What's the difference between being driven by fear or excellence?

pm--6 Checked some things off my list: went to a historic football stadium--Memorial Stadium, watched Wisconsin beat a conference rival, ran in Tony K's home state, and got lost in Tony K's home state. 'Twas a full Saturday.
