SANTA FE (KRQE) – The city of Santa Fe honored this year’s Boston Marathon winner Monday. A parade was held Monday afternoon for Santa Fe resident Caroline Rotich.
Last week she completed the Boston Marathon in 2 hours 24 minutes and 55 seconds, claiming her first Boston victory.
Rotich talked about returning to Santa Fe and what it felt like to have a parade in her honor.
“I’m so happy to be a part of Santa Fe and see everyone’s participating in what I do and loving it,” said Rotich. “Seeing people coming out and doing this is unbelievable and I’m happy about it.”
The elite athlete has lived and trained with Coach Ryan Bolton in Santa Fe for about five years.
