First Lady Margaret Kenyatta was on Wednesday morning joined by journalists drawn from local and international media houses for a training session as she gears up for the 4th edition of the Beyond Zero Half Marathon slated for March 10.

The training session which started at 6.30 a.m with a warm up session was led by athletics  trainer and former marathon world champion Douglas Wakiihuri and included an over 10km jog around State House Nairobi grounds.

Briefing the press after the training session, Douglas Wakiihuri said the First Lady has been training consistently for the last three weeks and, is fit and ready for the marathon.

While urging more people to sign up for the forthcoming run, Wakiihuri said that in order to run the half marathon with ease, one has to be disciplined and observe a strict training regime.

He said that First Lady Margaret Kenyatta has maintained a strict training regime over the years which she has accelerated in recent weeks ahead of the March 10 Beyond Zero marathon.

“You have to do endurance, speed, strength and at the same time take care of the wear and tear of your body,” Mr Wakiihuri said.
