Kenyans are used to watching Rita Jeptoo Busienei chalk up
victories in well-heeled, big city marathons abroad, most memorably the
2006 Boston Marathon.
Just last month, Rita was fourth in the BMW
Frankfurt Marathon, a race won by Ethiopian Mamitu Daska in a course
record two hours, 21 minutes and 59 seconds with Kenyan Agnes Kiprop
second in 2:23:54.
On Sunday, Rita ran her first major local race,
winning the Kass Marathon and saying her participation and victory
served to encourage upcoming runners. Quite a patriot.
