“The one thing I know to be true in this sport is personal discipline, because if you love something and you want to continue doing it, you can do it. All the time, try to be positive and love yourself."
In any sport it’s ideal to learn from the very best, and as a two-time Marathon World Champion and three-time Abbott World Marathon Majors series winner, it’s hard to find better than Edna Kiplagat.
