|NAIROBI Comprar Air Max 97 Rosa , Oct. 1 (Xinhua) -- Her debut show in the United States ended with an injury, but four years down the line, Kenya's World Half Marathon record holder Florence Kiplagat is ready to occupy the throne on the flat Chicago marathon course on Oct. 12.
Kiplagat, 27, will be among the elite field that is preparing to conquer the Chicago Marathon course.
Speaking in Eldoret on Wednesday after morning training session, Kiplagat said she is ready for the challenge.
"I am ready. The training has gone on well. I have tested myself in different races and circumstances and have come out good. But running the real marathon is different Comprar Air Max 97 Negras ," she said.
Her focus in Chicago will however not be on beating Paula Radcliff's world record of 2:15:25, but to try and lower her personal best of 2:19:44, which she set in 2011 in winning the Berlin Marathon.
At the time it made her the ninth fastest woman in history and third fastest Kenyan of all-time. "I want to run a fast race. The world record is way far beyond my grasp. But it is something that I plan to attack very soon," said Kiplagat.
She believes it will be possible for her to clear the 42km distance in Chicago in just two hours and 18 minutes. "I want to see how fast I can go. Depending on the weather, running in Chicago will be fun."
In 2010 in Boston Kiplagat made her debut on the American soil and ran 1:11:42 at halfway and 1:42:59 at 30km, but she did not finish the race.
She then competed at London in 2012 and ran a little more than a minute off her personal best in fourth place. She returned to Berlin in 2013 and won there again in 2:21:13 and was second at London in 2014.
Kiplagat made headlines in February at Barcelona when she ran an IAAF Half-Marathon World Record of 1:05:12.
"Past records are useless to me now. They only add pressure on you. I will focus on my race. I know we have Rita Jeptoo and she will be hard to beat Comprar Air Max 97 Undefeated , especially now that she is defending the title she won last year," said Kiplagat.
"But I also have my stature to maintain and winning is part of the programme I have for the race." The Chicago Marathon will feature four women with the potential to break the tape under 2:20.
Champion Jeptoo (2:18:57) will face Kiplagat (2:19:44), Jemima Sumgong (2:20:48) all Kenyan and newcomer, Ethiopia's Birhane Dibaba (2:22:30).
"I was supposed to compete in the Chicago marathon two years ago but was out due to injury but I am happy now to be part of the competition for my fans and supporters. It is no retreat and no surrender for me; it's a do or die game, and I will give all my best to succeed and make the 12th of October a great day," said Kiplagat.
Republicans struck a powerful first blow in Kentucky in U.S. congressional elections on Tuesday in their drive to control the U.S. Senate and dramatically tip the balance of power away from President Barack Obama and his Democrats.
Obama's low job approval rating Comprar Air Max 97 Blancas , partisan gridlock in Washington and a U.S. economy that is not growing broadly enough to help many in the middle class were major issues confronting voters in elections for 36 senators, 36 state governors and all 435 members of the House of Representatives.
ReutersIpsos projected Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell won his re-election battle, defeating Democrat Alison Lundergan Grimes in a race that had been extremely close until McConnell pulled away in the polls in recent days.
If Republicans go on to win the Senate on Tuesday, McConnell would replace Democrat Harry Reid as Senate majority leader, putting him in a powerful position on Capitol Hill.
Republicans also gained their first seat from Democrats when Shelley Moore Capito easily defeated Natalie Tennant to win a Senate seat in West Virginia left open by retiring Democratic Senator Jay Rockefeller.
Republicans are expected to pick up seats in the Senate, but polls ahead of the voting showed eight to 10 races are still toss-ups. They need to gain six seats to control the 100-member chamber for the first time since the 2006 election.
A key barometer for Democrats was whether they would be able to hold North Carolina Comprar Air Max 97 Hombre , where incumbent Democratic Senator Kay Hagan was in a tough fight against Republican challenger Thom Tillis.
Obama, whose 40 percent approval rating made him unwelcome on the campaign trail for many fellow Democrats, cast the race as critical in a radio interview with Charlotte, N.C., station, the Artie and Fly Ty show.
"If we lose North Carolina then we lose the Senate. And if we lose the Senate then the Republicans are setting the agenda Comprar Air Max 97 Mujer ," Obama said.
Perhaps sensing a big Republican night, Obama seemed to be trying to limit Democratic expectations in an interview with Hartford, Conn., radio station WNPR.
“In this election cycle, this is probably the worst possible group of states for Democrats since Dwight Eisenhower," Obama said www.comprarairmax97.es , referring to the 1950s Republican president.
The battle for control of the Senate could extend beyond Tuesday night. Senate races with multiple candidates in Louisiana and Georgia, where the winner must get more than 50 percent of the vote, could be forced into runoffs in December and January, respectively.
Seizing the Senate would give Republicans, who are expected to build on their majority in the House, control of both chambers of Congress.
That would constitute the most dramatic political shift since Obama entered the White House in early 2009 and might force the president to make more concessions to his Republican opponents than he would prefer.
'SHAKE THINGS UP IN WASHINGTON'
In Raleigh Comprar Air Max 97 Baratas , North Carolina, Edward Sanders, 59, said the economy was his top issue. After voting for Hagan for the Senate in 2008, Sanders said he decided this time to go with her challenger, Tillis.
"I don't particularly like Tillis Comprar Air Max 97 España , but he seemed more likel
