After Eliud's second appearance on the Second Captains podcast, he was invited to tonight's Second Captains Live television show. On the show, clips from a video of Eliud's farm was shown and he was presented with a rare Second Captains bath robe. Above Eliud is pictured with the hosts of the show, Ciaran Murphy, Eoin McDevit, and Ken Early. Eoin competed with Eliud in this year's Dublin Marathon.
Today's Dublin Marathon was a tactical one with the top four atheletes running together until about 39 km. Eliud Too, last year's champion, stayed tucked in the path throughout the race, but when the final move was made with less than 3 km to go, he was unable to respond to the injection of pace. Eliud came home in 4th place in 2:14:56. Photograph: Cyril Byrne/The Irish Times
Eliud Too visited the Run Hub this evening to run with customers. He led them in warm up drills and then a short easy running session. Afterwards, he had the opportunity to speak with everyone about his preparations to next week's Dublin Marathon. Video: The Run Hub
Last evening Eliud Too and James Walters attended an open forum at The Run Hub in Dublin, Ireland. Attendees were able to ask questions about training and the Dublin Marathon to the two along with prominant Irish runners Gary O'Hanlon and Kevin English. Photograph: The Run Hub
Matt Rosenberg and Audrey Smiddy competed in the 2015 Chicago Marathon today. Matt ran a personal best of 30 minutes running 3:04 and accomplishing his goal to qualify for the Boston Marathon. Audrey experiences hydration problems late in her race and was forced to stop a few miles from the finish. Great job by both putting their best efforts forward today and congratulations to Matt for his BQ.
