Though many in tiny St. Clements probably never knew it - their Wellesley Township village is home this spring to a remarkably talented running couple.
Wesley and Tarah Korir are training in the area for the next few months. Tarah, whose parents live in St. Clements, is one of Canada's top middle distance runners - and she's hoping to qualify for the Olympics before the end of June.
Her husband Wesley, hoping to run for his native Kenya at the Olympics, just won an obscure little race called the Boston Marathon on the weekend. Maybe you've heard of it. He's also twice won the Los Angeles Marathon and placed second last year in the Chicago Marathon.
He can often be found running the less-travelled dirt roads around Wellesley Township.
"He's kind of known in the Mennonite community as the only African runner they’ve ever seen in the area," Tarah told my colleague Brent Davis.
Tarah, who met Wesley in 2006 while both were students at the University of Louisville, won the eight-kilometre Harry’s Spring Run Off in Toronto earlier this month. She races again this weekend in Toronto.
The pair have a 19-month-old daughter, McKayla, and have divided their time recently between Canada, the United States and Kenya - where the run the Kenyan Kids Foundation.
Watch for a profile on this special couple in the coming weeks.
