EthioSports » Tirunesh Dibaba to contest first ever Half Marathon

27-yr-old Tiru, AKA 'the baby-faced destroyer' will run her first half-marathon(13.1 miles), the Bupa Great North Run in England. She announced this shift of focus from track to road during the 2012 Olympics, where she won gold in the 10,000M (6.2 miles).

I watched the Great North Run last year on-line and hopefully there will again be a live stream. I really want to watch Tiru's debut in real distance running. If I find a link I'll post it.
