A Successor to Paula Radcliffe?

Paula Radcliffe has dominated woman's long distance running. Of the five fastest marathons, she's run four of them. Nobody is within three minutes of her PR.
But Mary Keitany might be her successor. She set a world record half marathon in the UAE and on the way set records in most of the standard race distances starting at 8K. 8K! Racing an 8K is very different from a half marathon, but she set world records at 8K, 10M, and 20K! Her half marathon time is 1:05:50.
It will be interesting to see what she does in London this year.

Mary Keitany finished third at NYC.
