tbh i'm surprised the iten fitness tourism industry isn't more built out than it seems to be, given how many rich fitness hobbyists there are. at a glance this place looks like a foreign guy profiting off of indigenous culture, which sets off alarm bells. happens all over the world in the tourism industry, including here in pakistan. not impugning this dude in particular, maybe he's doing things right. easy to do things wrong, though.

yea not sure.

there's tons of "random" training camps in Kenya. I hear the government sanctioned stuff is also very corrupt, folks in charge of athletics pocket a big chunk of the money. Wilson Kipsang recently called them out on it, i posted it in the articles thread.

Apparently you can't just be a foreigner and work in Kenya though, need permits & such. Don't think they make it easy for foreigners to come in and just setup shop, but I imagine it does happen alot.

i'm also surprised it isn't more built out.. I think it's slowly growing though, they've realized they have a "running mecca" over there. One of the training camps I follow is white-person-owned-and-operated, it seems. They have lots of Kenyan coaches/trainers etc, so they definitely hire the locals - but they have to. People want to run with Kenyans, not non-kenyans, hah.

I'd love to see it keep growing though.. would be great to see runners over there, find easier ways of making money instead of just hoping to win races all over the world. So many fast Kenyan athletes over there, who never leave Kenya, but could win/top3 most prize money races in the US/Europe etc. It sucks because it's just circumstance at that point.

Kenya should have an *enormous* running economy.

the omarosa twist to this train wreck is kinda nuts.. the fact that she recorded Kelly/Trump etc.

https://www.cnn.com/2018/08/13/politics/omarosa-white-house-paranoia/index.html

then he calls her a dog in a tweet.

 :uhhhfacepalm:

some interview with her.

i'm surprised that anyone exists who would need to hear actual tapes to believe these allegations... eh. would be great if they surfaced though.

that hill path mile was pretty rough. I mean I felt ok during/after, but hard to get some speed. I'd like to really improve my speed on the "flat" during this effort. I could make up alot of time there if I could somehow get the paces down to low 5's on that flat part of the path, for each lap.





09:00 AM: workout: bw
- surprisingly not weak

steak and eggs.

but to be fancy and specific it's a grass fed new york strip, cheesy free run scrambled eggs cooked in grass fed butter, and a kale slaw with a dressing with avocado mayo, dijon, olive oil, mct oil, lemon juice, herbs, etc etc

top notch. :wowthatwasnutswtf:
