10/14 Went to the Ndalat XC race in Nandi. Good to see my in-law Eliud Kipchoge the greatest marathoner, also Abel Kirui back from Chicago, Janeth Jepkosei was there with Eunice Sum, also Ben Limo, Alfred Kirwa, and many others. Even when we left the VIP area (thanks Solo) we bumped into Olympic Champ Nancy Lagat. It was a crazy day with so many great runners.
10/13 Lunch with Lornah Kiplagat and her mom! Her mom gave us Mursiik - the Kenyan secret! Rotten milk - well cultured!
10/08 Watching the Chicago marathon with Mary Keitany and husband Charles at their house in Iten. Great race, was fun! An unknown Kenyan lady grabbed second - a room of runners and no one had heard of her despite she ran the first 25k at 2:17 pace!
10/07 Met Edna Kiplagat and Gilbert on the road in Iten! They are soon coming to the New York Marathon... and staying in America a little longer. They want to start a school in Kapkoi - we will visit soon. Edna almost won her 3rd title this year in the World Champs.09/16 Thanks to Seattle Green Lake Running Club for the 12-miles today. Great to meet the group and got to run with Jules and Kenny - trying to get everyone to come run in Kenya!
Watched an amazing Doc. on netflix called ICARUS - it was eye opening to say the least, what a superb job by Brian Fogel. Spurred on we next went on to Matthew Mc (complicated name) with Gold - another good watch. I rarely get to watch films but these two were worth the minutes.
09/12/17 Nice to meet Jesse Itzler (http://www.the100mileman.com/living-with-a-seal/) at an event Survive & Thrive, organized by Marvelous Marva and her friends up in Kent CT. Jesse used to volunteer with an Org I am affiliated with and then his staff contacted me a while ago ago about training for a 24-hr relay race... Anyway he is a great speaker; super enjoyable.
At the https://surviveandthrivetoday.com/ event there was a host of fun people doing a lot of exciting things and it all happened at an adventure park - good to meet the Tech world people of tomorrow... today!
Train at High Altitude. Many people ask me - "How can I go and train in Kenya?" I recommend one place; email email@example.com to go and stay at the Home of Champions. Join a slue of Olympians from around the world and running enthusiasts who come together for talk, training, and an unforgettable Kenyan vacation
