At the top of her form, England's Paula Radcliffe easily beat a quality field of elite runners to once again win the New York City Marathon on November 2, 2008. This photo illustrates her stunning pace, commitment, and deterrmination.
This was taken just past the 23-mile marker at slightly over 2 hours.
