After a quick run together last weekend I was given the opportunity to compare marathon stories with Paula and ask her what her top marathon tips are and which of her many marathons is her favourite. I can’t tell you how excited I was about having the chance to run with and interview the World Record holder. I really, really hope you all enjoy this.

‘I think my first marathon has to be on the list,’ Paula Radcliffe says as she sits opposite me after a NRC (Nike Running Club) shakedown run the day before the 2016 London Marathon. We had both just run a very gentle four kilometres from Oxford Circus to Holborn through London streets bathed in sunshine. ‘It was the first time running here in London, it went amazingly well and it was the race I had wanted to run with my Dad in 1985.’
