Wealthy New Yorker Pays US $400 For a Birthday Run With a Kenyan Runner

From the New York Times “a Mr. Michael Chambers received for his 40th birthday: a world-class runner from Kenya for a day.”

Richard Kiplagat was paid US $400 to run with Chambers and have lunch with his family.

The Kenyan was hired as a birthday gift from his wife Tina and his parents.

How does it feel to run against the best distance runners in the world?

“It’s literally like running next to a cheetah,” Chambers told the times!!!!
