Maritu Deska ran 2:24:19 to win the Standard Chartered Dubai Marathon earlier today, Friday, January 22, 2010. She worked hard for her money, all $250,000 of it. We have proof of that in a picture, that we will show, below the fold, shall we say, in order not to upset any delicate stomachs. Maritu got sick at the finish line. As it is part of the story, and not something to sensationalize, we are trying to warn you about the photo, shown below:
