As Kenyans watch with bated breaths as Eliud Kipchoge tries to write history in Vienna, Austria this morning, most camped on social media to share their messages of encouragement.
Kipchoge is attempting to be the first marathoner to run 42 kilometres in under two hours. President Uhuru Kenyatta led the pack wishing him well in his race.
KOT were also not left behind making the hashtag #Eliud159 number one trending on Twitter.
Kids are so impressionable.
My girls (4 yrs and 3 yrs) are taking turns being Kipchoge and running in the house.#Eliud159
