Rotich is 1-for-1 so far racing on the roads of New York City this year. In March she won the New York City Half Marathon, running away from 2010 New York City Marathon champion Edna Kiplagat to win in a course record 1:08:51. Rotich went on to finish fourth at the Boston Marathon, running 2:24:26, and also won the Quad-City Time Bix 7 this past summer. The Kenyan, who trains in New Mexico, is hoping to improve upon her 8th-place finish in New York City last November.
