She’s won major marathons, world and European championship titles, and set up the renowned High Altitude Training Center in Kenya, but these days Lornah Kiplagat runs for more down-to-earth reasons.
“I run every day,” she says. “The joy that running gives me, you cannot compare with anything else. That’s my life. After running, I am so positive, I can deal with everything. When I am a bit grumpy my husband will say, “Go for a run!’”
Women’s Running editor Liz Hufton caught up with Lornah at last month’s Virgin Money London Marathon, where she told us about the value of training by heart rate, her new clothing range (www.lornahsports.co.uk), and the work she is doing to improve access to education and running facilities in Kenya.
