Kenyans...

I've often wondered how Kenyans are always winning running races and setting records. I think maybe now I know why they are so fast: They fly instead of run. See the pic below for a better description. Must be nice to skim the surface of the road, instead of slapping your feet the whole way...

Of course, being so fast also means they missed most, if not all, of the downpour. That must have been nice. Kenyan Patrick Nthiwa had the winning time, with a 63:03 finish, a whole half-hour ahead of me. I'm told this is a new course record for the Vancouver Half Marathon. Congrats, Patrick! Mind if I borrow your winged shoes one of these days??
