RunBlogRun covers hundreds of events each year, in road running, cross country, and indoor and outdoor track. We go to 35-40 events a year, around the globe, and we partner with like minded media teams on coverage. We have partnered with Race News Service, which is Andy Edwards and Joerg Wenig, to provide levels of coverage at events we may not be able to attend.
Andy Edwards provides us insights into elite athletes and coaches, prior to and after the events. Conversant in Latin and Greek, Andy Edwards uses his lifelong appreciation of scholarship to provide us with contemporary athletic history. We are most fortunate for his and Joerg’s support.
This is an interview with Eliud Kipchoge, who was preparing for his 4th London marathon. Kipchoge’s confidence is the result of his focus, training, training group and team. Truth is, Eliud Kipchoge’s DNA is about being a athletic warrior. His first huge win, at the age of 19, was when he won the 2003 WC 5,000m from Kenenisa Bekele and Hicham El Guerrouj. Even with less than 200m to go, announcers discounted the young Kipchoge’s chances.
That does not happen any more. Enjoy Eliud Kipchoge speaking to Andy Edwards before the 2019 Virgin Money London Marathon.
