How do I describe Paula Radcliffe?
One of my all time favorite athletes. I recall her 2003 World record, her gutty, all out running, and her effort taking a huge price from her. A world record is meant to be like that. It is not something that happens each and every day. It is a near perfect moment, when our bodies, our spirits and our focus come together.
Paula gets that, she’s been there, and she’s been there when the day was, well absolute crap. That is part of the reason why I always have time for Paula Radcliffe. One of the few humans who shot for the sun, got pretty darn close and lived to tell about it.
