Via twitter from Ben True:

Ben True ‏@bentrue

The first of many miles run, new training partners unite. Hanover just got faster. Welcome @SamChelanga pic.twitter.com/2hYJtWZ11Z

Let's hope they don't stay in NH in the winter. Has Chelanga ever experienced a New England winter?

What's up with Chelenga? I know he was injured this year, but even before that: the dude runs 27:06 while still in College (same race as Solinsky's 26:59), then hasn't run anything even close to that kind of fitness in recent years.

Sam is awesome. Great for Ben to have such a great training partner. By the way, does anyone remember sam's YouTube channel Kiprengeng? Had some funny stuff on it.

So Sam is NOT with the OTC anymore? Is he still with Nike? Ben is coached by Coogan iirc, and is Saucony sponsored. Interesting pairing.

Chelenga is a husband and a father now, for the person who wasn't sure. Ben true trained in Florida last winter so I am guessing he and Sam will do something similar. You can train in a new England winter, but it isn't nearly as productive as heading to more tempid weather in the south.
