Khaimah Half Marathon

Amane made her debut in the marathon in January 2009 at the Houston Marathon and she managed to finish in fifth place.[11] At the Ras Al Khaimah Half Marathon the following month she set a personal best of 1:08:16 to take sixth place in the women's race.[12] Her next outing came at the Los Angeles Marathon in March and she headed to the front of the pack, but was overtaken by Tatyana Petrova in the latter stages of the race. Still, her time of 2:26:53 for second place marked a successful transition to the longer distance.[13] She competed extensively in the United States that summer, starting with wins at the Cooper River Bridge Run and Monument Avenue 10K. A fifth place at the Peachtree Road Race was followed up by a third place finish at the Boilermaker Road Race. Amane ran her third marathon of the year at the Toronto Waterfront Marathon. She duelled against Mulu Seboka, another Ethiopian runner and the defending champion, in the earlier stages but then pulled away around the 40 km to earn her first win over the distance, breaking the course record with a run of 2:28:30 in the process.[14] She brought a busy year to a close with two runs in September, taking eighth at the Delhi Half Marathon before securing the runner-up position behind Koreni Jelila at the Great Ethiopian Run 10K.[15][16]
