(CNN)After Stanley Kebenei set a new 10-mile American record on Sunday, he dropped to the ground, stretched his arms out wide and flashed a smile. Kebenei, who hails from Nakuru, Kenya, and now lives in Colorado Springs, Colorado, averaged 4:36 a mile. In 2017, he fell short of Meyer’s record when he won the same Cherry Blossom race in 46:36, averaging 4:40 a mile, according to race results. It was a record-setting day all around. Rosemary Wanjiru of Kenya won the women’s race in 50:42. She set a new course record and a US women’s 10-mile race record. More than 17,000 runners took part in the 10-mile run.
