Kenya - Photo Album

Due to poor wifi I couldn't add any photos whilst I was out in Kenya - so here they are now! Apologies some are small, was unable to increase their size for some reason...

The iconic arch marks the entrances to either end of Iten - just to rub in that you are on their turf!

Signs of Kenyans love of running are everywhere to be seen in Iten. 
Me and Kerio View, which offers breathtaking views over the Rift Valley.
The entrance to the Camp.
Kamariny Stadium in Iten - currently the only athletics track in the town (a synthetic track is in construction) and where Kiprop, Kipsang, Rudisha and co and the foreign athletes who train in Iten do their sessions.

Me and Wilson Kipsang, one of many WR holders/Olympic champs who use the gym in the camp. It was good of him to pose for a photo but he clearly wasn't that interested in me!

St Patricks High School, still home to David Rudisha and his legendary coach Brother Colm
The Alumni wall of fame in the dining hall at St Patricks, featuring all-time greats of the sport - was truly inspiring.
A different video of me, Mo Farah, his UK coaches and some Kenyans running home.
Mo Farah showing off his Arsenal spikes!

A video of Mo Farah in the middle of his 600m, 400m, 300m, 200m x 4 session
My tiny room for four weeks!
The town of Iten
Walking to the track, I bumped into some school children heading out for break time - brought a smile to my face. Wonder how many future champions there are here!
