Marathon

Tonight was an amazing end to the Olympic Men's Marathon!
Samuel Wansiru became the first Kenyan to win an Olympic gold medal in this event shattering the Olympic record in the process.  I'm thrilled!  I have a big soft spot for Kenya because as a 16 year old high schooler I spent 3 1/2 months living with a family there.  It was a life altering, moving from a kid to an adult experience. I owe Kenya a lot in that regards.  And I was thrilled to watch two Ethiopians battle for the bronze medal going 3 - 4!  So the Horn of Africa ruled the marathon tonight! How awesome is that!
