Wesley Korir extends his relationship with Nike, release, note by Larry Eder

Wesley Korir has become one of the most popular runners on the U.S. circuit. Besides some fine marathoning, Korir spends time with the local media, talks to young athletes and fans, and has a great sense of humor. Wesley's personal best of 2:06.13, came at the Bank of America Chicago marathon in October 2012, in pretty chilly conditions. His win in the 2012 Boston Marathon was just the opposite: warm, humid conditions. 

Wesley Korir is a tough competitor. His 2012 Boston victory was in conditions that Wesley told RBR later were just brutish. His sense of self, his faith and his fitness level were all tested, and Korir came out the victor in a very tough day of racing.
