Quote Of The Day
“Paula was so ahead of her time. It seems so untouchable that women are just running to win. No one believes in going for 2:15.”
– Deena Kastor talking in a Phil Hersh / Chicago Tribune article about how the 2:15:25 women’s marathon world record is totally untouchable yet the men’s gets broken regularly. Kastor should know as she broke the US record in the London 2003 race where Paula set the WR but finished nearly 6 minutes back. Trivia fact: Paula set her first WR in Chicago in 2002 with some help from LetsRun.com.
