Paula Radcliffe targets another marathon

Paula Radcliffe says that she plans to run one more London Marathon when she has recovered from injury.

Long-distance runner Paula Radcliffe has admitted that she would love to attempt one more London Marathon once she has fully recovered from her broken foot.

Radcliffe said that now she can run again on tarmac she would begin training in the hope of once more being able to post a competitive time in the event.

"People are talking about it as though it's some huge big comeback," she told Sky Sports News. "But it's me just getting out and enjoying being competitive.

"I would love to run the London Marathon and it's something I'm working towards at the moment - to finish off my competitive career where I started and which would be really special.

"My foot is now able to handle running on the tarmac for that distance, even though it would be sore afterwards."

In 2003 Radcliffe set the fastest time in the world for the women's marathon.
