My local freebie newspaper  (Northampton Mercury and Citizen) reported that in a pancake race in Olney (not far from Paula's old club), the winner completed the 400metres, complete in headscarf, apron, (good disguise!) and carrying a frying pan with a pancake in it, in..............wait for it...........69 seconds!!!!!!!!!!!

Who else could it be????????

Paula does her 400m reps in about 65 seconds at least so doubt she'd enter a 400m race when she can do 20 reps in a single session??

She looks less skinny in real life too..but a helluva lot more muscular.

oh well, must have been some other world class runner fancied a pancake race in fancy dress in a small town close to Bedford.. Must be part of a world class runners training programme i would think.

.......well who knows? come the UK olympics, carrying a frying pan and wearing a headscark might well become compulsery.  Our top women will be ready!

69 secs for 400m isnt world class? yea it would take me a lot longer than that but id guess many club runners could get well under 69 secs
