She crossed the line 49 seconds ahead of the second-place women’s finisher, Buzunesh Deba. With the victory, Jeptoo earned the World Marathon Majors women’s title, and the $500,000 bonus that comes with it ... Jeptoo wasn’t always an Adventist. She first began contending in top competitions in 2008, and met Adventist runner Abel Kirui in training camp in Iten, Kenya. Kirui, who won a silver medal at the 2012 Olympic Games in London, invited Jeptoo to visit the church he attends. It wasn’t long before she became a regular visitor and met her future husband.
