Paula Radcliffe won the NYC marathon on Sunday, Nov 4, 2007. This was her first marathon in two years since giving birth in January. She finished in 2:23:09 in cool, sunny conditions.
Gete Wami, of Ethiopia, was right behind Radcliffe the entire race.
"I felt quite relaxed," Radcliffe said. "I knew she was behind me, but she was alongside so it wasn’t so annoying."
"This is mine, this is mine," Radcliffe chanted to herself down the stretch.
The race included 39,085 runners at the start.
Moms rule! Way to go!
