As promised in an earlier post we are extremely excited to announce that you can now watch the interview with athlete manager Tom Payn and Run-Fast athlete Boniface Kongin on the Guardian’s running blog. The pair are featured in a video article by Adharanand Finn who poses the question: why does Kenya produce the best distance runners in the world? Is it their diet? Is it to do with their childhood days of running to school? And what was Tom Payn thinking when he grew that beard?
Watch the video to find out if he’s any closer to the answers. We defy you to watch this interview and not smile.
Author of the brilliant book ‘Running with the Kenyans‘, Adharanand is a runner, a family man, globe trotter, assistant production editor of the Guardian newspaper and avid Twitterer.
