Sammy Kitwara of Kenya has won the Peachtree Road Race in Atlanta for the second time.
He sprinted to the finish line of the 6.2-mile race Sunday morning, winning just ahead of fellow Kenyan Mathew Kisorio. Kitwara’s time was 28 minutes, 5 seconds.
The 24-year-old Kitwara also won the Peachtree in 2009. He came in eighth last year.
The top women’s racer was Werknesh Kidane of Ethiopia, who finished in 31:22.
The top U.S. men’s racer was Ben True, his first time in the race. Adriana Nelson was the top U.S. female finisher.
An estimated 60,000 runners crossed the finish line at the end of the annual race through Atlanta’s streets.
Now as for me… I had set a personal goal to finish with a better time then I did last year however, I actually finished two minutes slower that last year.
No problem, the training for next year starts today… On a positive note I did have the opportunity to run this year’s AJC Peachtree Road Race with my college roommate, who I haven’t seen in nearly ten years!!!
