Look who’s walking at the NB Power Run 2011. I find it to be rare sight to see Kenyan runners walking in a race. Often times they would be running at a blinding speed with the lead pack and eventually finish in the top 3. The two Kenyan runners below were supposed to be running the 25K but I saw them walking at KM 23 during the Chevrolet New Balance Power Run 2011.
Kenyans have dominated all the major marathon worldwide for this year. They gained the top finish rankings and even break the course records in their respective events.
I don’t intend to belittle our fellow runners who may not be living up to their reputation as the fastest runners in the world. I just realized that anyone can have a bad day. Or a bad race.
Despite a good training and preparation, something might happen in the middle of the race. It can be a muscle cramp, upset stomach, pain, injury, or the wall.
But what becomes important is the determination to finish. Like what other runners would advice: Walk or even crawl if you must.
