Mommy Marathoner Wins NYC Marathon Again!

British mommy marathoner Paula Radcliffe did it again! She won the NYC Marathon for the third time. Radcliffe, whose daughter will be two years old in January, finished the race in 2:23:56 with the second place winner crossing the finish line almost two minutes later. That is what I call an impressive lead! Congrats Paula!

Paula wasn't the only runner we were rooting for here at FitSugar. To see how newlywed Ryan Reynolds fared in the race, just


Ryan finished the marathon in under four hours with the respectable time of 3:50:22. Not bad for a first timer at all! Speaking of first timers, one of my favorite runners, Olympic middle distance runner Kara Goucher, made her marathon debut and came in third place! Her finishing time of 2:25:53 is the fastest finishing time for an American woman in the history of the New York City Marathon. Goucher is definitely a runner to watch.

Reading about other people running always makes me want to hit the asphalt, but I am not sure I want to run 26.2 miles like these folks. Tell me, how do you feel about running a marathon?

It made me feel like the 5k I ran the day before was nothing... But then again, I don't need three weeks of recovery time.

Watching Paul was amazing. She seemed perfectly fine after, picking up her daughter and jogging around with the British flag. Kara Goucher also should be commended, she was the first American woman to place in years. Anyone competing in this year's marathon is a hero in my book.

Respectable? Not bad? Wow, what's impressive to you? Because I think running sub-9 minute miles for almost four hours is pretty amazing.

Yeah it was so sad when they interviewed her immediately afterwards -she couldn't even speak through her tears and disappointment.

She really did look like she was in so much pain at the Olympics, so I'm glad that she's made such a comeback!

Good for her - watching her limp through the last leg of the Olympics made me cry.
