NEW YORK (AP) -- Geoffrey Mutai sees the scorching fast times put up by his training partners and figures he should be able to match them.
They're doing the same workouts, so he's confident he can put up the same results. When Dennis Kimetto broke the course record at last month's Chicago Marathon, Mutai said, "I was feeling it was me."
Mutai already owns the course record at the New York City Marathon, where he will defend his title Sunday. His goal is to go even faster.
The Kenyan won in New York two years ago in 2 hours, 5 minutes, 6 seconds. That was the last time the NYC Marathon was held, and much has changed since that day Mutai describes as "perfect."
