Marathoner Brigid Kosgei Hilariously Recalls Being on Plane for First Time

World record holder Brigid Kosgei has recalled her first time to travel abroad.

In a recent interview, the long-distance runner disclosed that she travelled with someone who was also travelling abroad for the first time. 

“Tulienda na kijana mwingine, yeye pia ilikua mara yake ya kwanza sasa hatujui wapi ni wapi, tulipewa tickets lakini tulikua tunabebana nayo tu, hata hatujui inasomwa aje; hatujui wapi ni wapi,” Brigid said. 

Brigid noted that they had no clue how the airport operates and had to seek help from people at the airport. 

“Kenya tulisaidiwa, tukapewa directions lakini vile tulifika ikakua ngoma. Tulikaa mchana mzima mpaka jioni. Sikuwa na simu ya WhatsApp na yeye pia, tukakaa tu kama bongo lala,” she added.

The marathoner also recalled an instance while flying where she locked herself inside a toilet in the plane. 

“Saa zile tuliambiwa ndio hiyo washroom ya ndege nikaenda nikajifungia ndani. Sijui kufungua. Nikapiga nduru nikiwa ndani lakini haiskiki. Nikapiga nduru, nikalia nikiwa ndani lakini hakuna mtu aliskia. Kitu ikaniambia niturn lock ikafunguka,” Brigid said. 

Brigid further joked about how she boasted about travelling abroad after returning home.
