Anyway....the Chicago Marathon was held on Sunday, October 13th. The winner, Dennis Kimetto of Kenya, finished the race in 2 hours, 3 minutes and 45 seconds. Whew! He beat the previous record set by Ethiopia's Tsegaye Kebede last year (2 hours, 4 minutes and 45 seconds).
The Chicago Marathon was Dennis' second major victory this year. He won a race in Tokyo in February. And to think, just a few years ago Dennis was a farmer, tending to cattle in a west Kenyan town. Pretty dope, right?
