What are you talking about?

We here at LetsRun have gone out our way and spent a ton of money to celebrate the African runners as individuals. We've travelled the globe at great expense to profile them even though our audience is primarily focused on Americans. We've been to Kenya three times in the last five years.

Perhaps you missed our series from Kenya this year:

That being said, I don't think there is anything wrong with being proud of American, even American born runners and yes I'll say it - white runners.

What is wrong with pointing out and celebrating Chris Solinsky being the first white guy under 27:00?

In all other walks of life, the accomplishments of minorities are celebrated. Why not running? Wes Walker is an anomaly in the NFL. Solinsky in the world of running.


I'm not racist, I know loads of black people.

I jest, I jest. Of course this is a legitimate question. You shouldn't feel the need to explain yourself to the idiots on here.

I wonder if we will see the most different nationalities to make the top 50?

Kenyan
American
British - Goose
Irish - Rooney
Czech - Zivec
Canadian - Ahmed
Jamican - Campbell
Australian - McEntee
