A 10 Year Record

This April marks the 10th Anniversary of Paula Radcliffe’s marathon world record. 10 years ago, in the London Marathon, Radcliffe ran 26.2 miles in 2:15:25. Even to this day, the next closest time is three minutes slower. Last Thursday an article came out, stating that Radcliffe fears she’ll never race again. I remember in 2004 watching Radcliffe drop out of the Olympic marathon and I almost cried with her. It was heartbreaking. But through her many injuries, Radcliffe has some amazing accomplishments. She has two world records, the 10K and marathon, along with a few other world bests (but they are unratifiable). Even if she never races again, she is amazing.

Here is her marathon finish in 2003:

Happy Trails and Happy Running,

Recovery/Running Update: I ran an easy 3 miles this morning through Microsoft’s campus. Tomorrow I am meeting one of my running friends for a run through Seattle and I am really looking forward to it. 🙂
