A prolific marathoner, Deba is having quite a year for herself on the roads. In March, the Ethiopian who lives in the Bronx won the Honda LA Marathon in 2:26:34, then came back in June to win the Dodge Rock ‘n’ Roll San Diego Marathon in a California state record of 2:23:31. She knows how to race to the finish line in Central Park, having won the UAE Healthy Kidney 10K in 33:29. In 2010, Deba won two marathons (Twin Cities and Grandma’s) while placing tenth in New York last November.
