Double for Gete Wami "Getachene"

Tedla Asfaw
After the warm up marathon in Berlin on September 30 and winning it  Gete Wame "Getachene" is going to run for New York City Marathon this coming Sunday on a mild November, about 45-55deg, and if she wins she will be the winner of the two cycle World Majors and will get half million dollars.
In Berlin after her win hagging Haile Gebre Selasse for seating a new world record she might got some tips from him about the feel of Central Park and the concretes of New York City and as a New Yorker let me give you some tips for" Getachene".
New York City likes new comers and remember the record for the New York City Marathon was set by Tesfaye in 2001 on his firs try and I do believe you will do the same and do not stay behind and hang on with the elite runners especially Paula Redcliffe a one time winner from Great Britain.
The race will be decided  on the central park hills and I know as a former five and ten thousands Olympic medalist there is no one better than you "Getachene" and do not forget your fans are waving your country flag  right and left to energize you and make history to win two marathons in two weeks interval.
Your beautiful smile will win you many fans and we are looking forward to see that smile at the finishing line this coming Sunday,
