Cellcom Green Bay Marathon, Mother Nature was the most influential factor in the 12 Th Cellcom Green Bay Marathon on Sunday. The sky became clear that the race was run, but the temperatures struggled to rise through the 40′s and a strong wind blew from the northeast at 15-25 miles per hour everywhere. The field had to step in that closing the road mile Fox River runs from 16 to 21. The weather kept times down and the winner, Peter Omae Ayieni of Kenya finished in 2:26:16. It was the third appearance in the race Ayieni and joked about his best was good enough for third three years ago, a slighlty slower time last year I had finished second and his worst was still good enough for his first win. The women’s winner was Katie Howery of Verona, who broke the tape in 2:47:12. Half marathon winners Sigle Tyler, a native of Seymour in a time of 1:06:18 and Jenna Boren won the women’s race in 1:19, 33.

“But, you know, winning a marathon. … Not everyone can say to do that. Only really have to keep things in perspective and be grateful for what you have and what they are capable of achieving and not take things for granted.
“If I can improve and keep training and keep a positive attitude, hopefully things will work out.”
