Kenyan Wins Philadelphia Marathon

PHILADELPHIA (AP) ― Kristin Price of Raleigh, N.C., pulled away from the competition at the 20-mile mark to win the women’s title in the Philadelphia Marathon in 2:42:05 on Sunday.

Kenya’s Timothy Psitet, who waited until the 25-mile mark before making his move on training partner Solomon Too, took the men’s title in 2:25.01. Too, the runner-up, hit the tape at 2:26.03.

Both winners said their performances were affected by the weather, which featured gusty winds and temperatures in the low 40s. (H/TCBS3)
