So many would-be runners suffer from the same problem. They would like to run a marathon, but no one tells them what to do. Fortunately, in just one week, they will no longer have that excuse. BROLYMPUS’ GUIDE TO RUNNING MARATHONS goes on sale November 11!
There’s been a lot of negativity recently about allegedly self-centered marathoners sharing their accomplishments with family and friends. Actually they are performing a valuable service!
When I read this article on cheating in the Nairobi Marathon, I was shocked! Apparently Julius Njogu snuck in to the race at the last minute and captured second place, behind the leader’s 2:13:25.
HORRIFYING! A marathon in Kenya won in a time that is regularly bested by bush-league American runners? Cheating or not, with times like that, Njogu should have easily come in first place. C’mon, Kenya, surely you can do better than 2:13 on your home turf!
