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!
