After 3 months of intensive training, I ran the 2008 Stanchart Nairobi marathon. In 2006 I ran my first marathon in a time of 3 hours 26 minutes. In 2007 I cut my Personal Best time by 20 minutes, and finished in a time of 3 hours 6 minutes.
Am happy to say this year I finished the marathon in a new personal best of 2 hours 54 minutes. My goal is to beat Lance Armstrong time of 2 hours 45 minutes, I didn’t do it this year but am on the way!!
According to marathon guide website, in 2007 only 6000 thousands runners out of 500,000 runners were able to run a 42K marathon in under 3 hours. Am happy to have finally joined this elite club!!!
