The other day, Ashlee Bobb, Senior Communications Manager at GQ, sent me this amazing piece on Eliud Kipchoge. Knox Robinson, a fine writer, did justice to the zen Master of the Marathon, giving us a view into the training camps, and Kipchoge’s particular talents, world class leg speed, an ability to handle lots of mileage consistently, and the ability to focus on the most challenging distance in athletics.
Enjoy the article and Eliud Kipchoge doing the fashionista thing.
KIPCHOGE WANTS TO KEEP RUNNING
“When you see marathon people training and you see the results, you don’t know what’s inside those results,” runner Eliud Kipchoge says. “Many things are going on behind the scenes. Don’t miss the training in the morning and the evening, because the body is counting.”

Conventional wisdom suggests he has only a handful of marathons left, and he’s aiming to run one of them at the Olympics in Tokyo, which have been postponed from this summer to 2021 in the wake of the surging coronavirus pandemic. He talks to GQ about what’s next.
