Paula Radcliffe made history in the 2003 Virgin London Marathon, when she ran a astonishing 2:15.25, a world record that lasted until this past October 2019, when Brigid Kosgei ran a new WR 2:14.04 on 13 October 2019. Radcliffe won the Virgin London marathon three times (2002, 2003, 2005), and the 3 time winner of the NYC Marathon (2004, 2007 and 2008), plus one time Chicago marathon winner (2002). Paula is both World Champion medalists and Olympic medalists.
Paula Radcliffe is part of the TV commentating team with Tim Hutchings at the 2020 Standard Chartered Dubai Marathon. I feel fortunate every time that I see Paula. She is always kind of enough to have a conversation with fans at any event that she attends. She is also a lot of fun, and I love to talk athletics with her.
Paula Radcliffe had done about five interviews at least before we were able to speak. She kindly took my questions, and as always, provided me with thoughtful answers.
