Good morning! How are you finding the training today?
I am not finding it difficult. This is not my first time training here and every Sunday I exercise in some way.
Why did you decide to run the 2014 Liberia Marathon/10K? Are you new to running?
I want to test my skill, and I want to win a prize. I am not new to running; I am an old hand in the game.
What motivates you to keep going when you feel tired?
What motivates me is my goal. I am targeting my goal. If I sometimes see myself ahead, it means that I am not the last. So I keep moving forwards until I can be the first.
What are you most looking forward to about the big day on August 31st?
I am looking forward to being a winner!
What message would you give to other people thinking about joining up?
To exercise your body it makes you strong and healthy. So join up!
