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.

pm--6.5 Harts warm and cool followed by 4 x 1000 @ 3:35 average pace w/ 3:00 recovery. It felt tough as I tried to help some of the girls keep a steady pace.

pm--8.5 Ran a backwards loop around Santa Clara via Rachel Dr. It was nice out this afternoon, and the Frees feel pretty good. I kept a pretty good pace. It usually ends up that way when I'm on my own.

am--12 Run into the dawn from home to the Sugarloaf. Man, the climbs are killer. Relaxed pace, but I could tell that this was longer than I've run in a while.
