Radcliffe and Goucher are not just running for fun in NYC: they are running for four

Resized_09marathon_CA1_popup What do you suppose are the chances that England's and the world's fastest female marathon runner, and one America's fastest female marathon runners would compete in a 10 K race in Central Park in New York just for fun while both are pregnant?

So perhaps Britain's Paula Radcliffe , 36, and America's Kara Goucher , 32, won't really "race" the upcoming June 12th 39th NYRR New York Mini 10K, organized by the New York Road Runners.

In fact they'll just run for fun as both are due at about the same time: Radcliffe with her second child and Goucher with her first.

"They intend to run, not race," a New York Road Runners spokesperson said recently.

The two world class runners will be special guest at this year's woman's only 10K, and it must go without saying that they'll certainly both be running for two.

But while this 10K may be a friendly race, both women intend to get back to serious training after giving birth as both intend to compete for the gold medal at the 2012 London Olympic Marathon.
