    <Is Radcliffe running 26 or 10?>

    From the link to UK athletics provided in the London Marathon thread ( ... em,00.html ), Paula has been named to the marathon team.

    "Currently my plan is to compete in the marathon in Athens. However, I would like to be also entered for the 10,000m so that I have the option to make the decision later. All my preparation is gearing towards the marathon and I feel it is important to compete in the event that your heart is in, which for me at the moment is the marathon. It’s great to have the first hurdle out of the way with my selection to Team GB for the marathon."

      Lee you are absolutely correct. An amazing women's race. For 2 women to go 2:24 under those condition was incredible. If they had had nice 48 degrees and overcast both would have been in the 2:21 range easy.

      I didn't get to see the race on TV but I followed the webcast and understand it was coy cat and mouse game between those two and from different nations who are heated rivals as well. I will enjoy seeing these two ladies renew the rivalry in Athens, especially now that they have re-proven their abilities to handle the heat.
