British athlete Paula Radcliffe, 33, won her second New York City Marathon today, and what got her to the finish line was her nine-month-old daughter Isla.
It was tough — I didn’t have the breathing problems I usually get towards the end, but my legs felt very tired. I just kept repeating to myself ‘I love you Isla’ to keep my rhythm going.
Dad is Paula’s husband and coach, Gary Lough.
