How Cool Is This Woman?

Writing about web page http://news.bbc.co.uk/sport1/hi/athletics/4445391.stm

Ok let's get this straight.

  • Paula Radcliffe suffers nasty Olympics but instead of wobbling away and never touching a marathon ever again she goes straight back to running every marathon under the sun.

  • Paula then wins the New York marathon 11 weeks later.

  • Then just to add a touch of genius to the situation, today she wins the London marathon in 2 hours, 17 minutes and 41 seconds (five minutes ahead of second place) despite having to stop halfway for a wee.

  • Paula Radcliffe used her amazing running powers to run away from the town of her birth- Northwich. If you have ever been to, lived in or had to go to school in Northwich you will understand.

That is all.

  2. Ah she is an awesome woman, who, despite the baffling and energy wasting head wabble, still manages to win races…....Imagine the energy she could conserve did she beat the head wabble, she'd be running marathons in easy sub two hour times I'm sure…......
    Nice to see you appreciate such an athlete Hol….......

  6. Yeah, Hol sure is one of the great thinkers of our time. Just check out this fascinating discussion on the nature of artistry and the state that we were having earlier:
