I have had the chance to meet some of the Kenyan runners in the Philadelphia area. Some told us by Kenyan standards they where a “slow runner” but then would run the race and easily win the race. One year I ran a 5k race in North Wales , PA. At the water stop was a new runner to the United States running scene named Cathrine Nderiba. She was cheering on all the runners and giving out water. A few years later she won Boston for the second time. Watching this video will make you think about how hard they work to get out of poverty. The hard work in why Kenya is a power house in long distance running.
