It was my pleasure to be on the podium with Keith Chan of…Continue

Today's hilly 10k on Cheung Chau island saw a Kenian sweep in both age-groups. runningintokyo's Francis Kemei easily won the senior division, but could not keep up with Thomas, a 24-year-old Kenian resident of Hong Kong who happens to be from Francis' hometown of Eldoret!
I was happy…Continue
