Paula's out

Paula's pulled out of FLM09.

Something about a broken toe. Again.

Poor thing. Anyone would think she was avoiding racing me, even with the elite female 30 minute head start!


  • Yep, that's definately the reason!

    Is she pregnant?

    She might as well have another baby then.
  • I reckon they rejected her.

    I hope they sent her this lovely fleece like they keep sending me! image

  • bugrit! she beat me in 2005 - by a narrow margin of 3 hours

    she wimped out in 2007 and again in 2008. I thought she would have at least given me a fighting chance this year image

  • A bunion?

    A bloody BUNION?????image

    Isn't that what Vicky Beckham has got from wearing all those stoopid Jimmy Choos?

    Maybe she should try some different shoes, Paula I mean, not Vicky!, although maybe Vicky Beckham should try some different shoes aswellimage

  • I think Paula and Andy Murray obviously go to the same shoe shop. Come to think of it - you never see them both in the same room do you?
  • Is it time for a joke about hair and the free models that you used to get with tokens off the back of Robertsons jam jars?
  • What a suprise!! 

    Be interesting if she makes the start line for New York, like she did 3ish years ago.

    But then again I think they pay better appearence money

    so dave you think she's only moticated by appearance money? interesting perspective on life....

  • It's the main reason I said "no" to FLM....

    They only offered me a "mill" to do it and I don't lace up my pumps for less than two mill.....

    And they wanted me to share a dressing room with Gordon Ramseyimageimage

  • I used to enjoy our chats with tea and biscuits at mile 11 too.
  • G.D.

    yeh I think that as a profesional sports person she is motivated by money, its her living, she has failed to run London in the past but managed new york weeks later with no problem, just a larger cheque, as I say it will be interesting to see what happens

  • London is in April and NYC is in November! image

  • lierbird,

    this is the 3rd time poor paula has had a problem with LM!  hopefully by november it will have rectified it self (again) and she will be able to run ny, (again),

    It makes me smile how people are very quick to assume that she only does this stuff for money. Sure, she's got to make a living, but more than that she's a winner and a living legend. If she cant run, she cant run simple as. dave wood 4 - why does it bother you so much that she's not doing it, even if your theory is right?
  • Mr LB has done all the world majors now and simply doesn't like the FLM course. He thinks it's boring, although he acknowledges that the mall finish is great. Maybe Paula's just not that enamoured with it either?

    He liked Boston best - all white picket fences and New England history!
