One of the fun parts of this job is finding the new stars.
We are wondering if we have just that with Penina Wanjiru. Penina is a journeyperson marathoner who has had some good races. She knows if she does well here, more opportunities to race in the West, plus more interest from sponsors. Doing well in Athens Marathon puts an athlete like Penina Wanjiru on the map.
Penina was interviewed by Andy Edwards of Race News Service. Race News Service provides RunBlogRun and the RunningNetwork content on marathons and road races around the globe.
