a year ago

Half Marathon World Record Holders Joyciline Jepkosgei and Geoffrey Kamworor reigned supreme

The 2019 TCS New York City Marathon is in the books and we entertained ourselves talking about it. Not only did we break down all the action and weekend in New York, with the impressive wins by half marathon world record holders Geoffrey Kamworor and Joyciline Jepkosgei, but got in heated discussions about the US Olympic Marathon Trials, Kamworor’s best event for Tokyo, the World Marathon Majors expansion, Anthony Rotich, Donald Trump, China, and of course the Dallas Cowboys, NY Giants and New England Patriots.
