PHILADELPHIA, PA—Augustine Choge and Stephen Sambu of Kenya ran together for several miles at the Philly Rock 'n' Roll Half Marathon held September 18.  Choge went on to win in 1:03:25 very easily, while Sambu faded to 14th in 1:12:12.  Sambu, training for his first marathon, did place fifth overall at his debut in Chicago.  Scott Smith of Flagstaff,AZ took second in 1:05:03.  Jeffrey Eggleston of Boulder, CO was third in 1:05:19.  Justin Krebs of York, PA. was the top Masters in 1:13:30.
