ITEN (KEN): Dennis Kimetto has admitted he doesn't know how his body will respond in the Chicago Marathon but all being well, he hopes to challenge his course record of 2:03:45, informs Xinhua. "I am in training and don't want to put any demands on myself. It has been frustrating and I tell you all that matters now is to get back on the starting line-up and compete. How the body will take that pressure is something I can't tell right now," he said. "If things go as planned, I want to break the course record in Chicago."
