Thrice was nice as Jane Murage completed the women’s three-peat Sunday in the 26th Times Colonist 10K through the streets of the capital.
“People know me now and were shouting: ‘Go Jane go,’ ” said the 28-year-old professional runner from Kenya, who won in 33 minutes and 07 seconds.
“The crowd was so supportive and that motivated me to move.”
Meanwhile, Kelly Wiebe of Vancouver found that besting Kenyans in running can be famishing work.
“I’m really hungry and going to eat a lot of food for brunch,” said Wiebe, after winning the men’s Times Colonist 10K championship in 29:08.
