I am now back in Kenya after such a wonderful experience at the Tamarack Ottawa Race Weekend in Ontario, Canada. My special thanks go to Mr. John Halverson, the race director for organizing such a great race; Manny Rodrigues, the elite athletes’ coordinator for getting me the invitation; Annie Boucher, media relations for putting up my articles on their website and all the other officials and staff at the Tamarack Ottawa Race Weekend for making the weekend such a success.

The IAAF Doha Diamond League event kicks off the 2016 IAAF diamond league season with great fields in the distance events: Asbel Kiprop and Silas Kiplagat line up the men’s 1500m race, Almaz Ayana faces Vivian Cheruiyot in the women’s 3000m, the men’s 3000m steeplechase event will most likely predict the podium podium positions at the Rio Olympic Games with Ezekiel Kemboi, Jairus Birech and Conseslus Kipruto among the competitors and Caster Semenya faces Eunice Sum in the women 800m event.

About a week after the Cardiff world half marathon championships, I did not expect to see Kamworor back in training, but there he was at the University of Eldoret waiting to do track intervals with the rest of the group. As he warmed up around the track, he would occasionally stop to say hello to other athletes and almost everyone was requesting to see his bruised knees. I also got a chance to see, and could observe that it was only someone who loved running so much, and have big ambitions, that would turn up for training in his condition.
