Paula Radcliffe credits daughter for her winning NYC Marathon
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.
