Jacob is a young fellow I met a few weeks before this video. We ran together for a short time near the track, he was on a school run. A week later I heard ‘Hello Eric’ from the track infield, Jacob and his friends were planning soccer with an egg shaped ball. After chatting with them for a bit, said I’d try and find them a new ball. Iten is a town of a few thousand, but no stores that sell soccer balls even if you had the 9000 schillings ($10). Found one in Eldoret 45minutes away, I was going anyway that weekend.
