PAULA RADCLIFFE will run her first marathon for 12 months on Sunday, when she takes to the line in New York as defending champion. The 35-year-old has had a year blighted by injury a fractured toe forced her out of the London Marathon in April, while a hamstring complaint cost her the chance of going for gold at Augusts World Championships in Berlin. Its been one of the toughest years Ive had -- particularly as Ive done all the work for the races and not been able to compete, said Radcliffe. And Ive probably been a total nightmare to live with. Ive been flitting between wanting to punch a hole in the wall to wanting to start crying. But Isla [her daughter] has been great at giving me perspective. I might be wallowing and shell just turn round and want to sing The Wheels On The Bus, which snaps you out of it pretty quickly. Poults back with all Guns blazing! IAN POULTER grabbed the early lead at the Barclays Singapore Open today and told LiteSport: I was inspired by Arsenal! Poulter,backafterasix-weekbreak,carded a five-under-par 65 at Sentosa Golf Club to lead by one from Ernie Els and Chinese Taipeis Chan Yih-shin. Poulter, 33, who was rapped for wearing an Arsenal shirt while playing in Abu Dhabi, said: Im pretty happy with that start to a seven-week run of golf. Ill spend the after- noon chilling. ItwassogoodtoseetheArsenalkidsturn overLiverpoollastnight,andOrlandoMagic won their first game too, so its been a good day... Poulter, who hadnt fired a shot in anger sincetheBMWChampionshipinSeptember, dropped just one shot around the Serapong Course. And he purred: I used the new ZL Cobradrivertoday,withanewspeedershaft. Good job Cobra, its worked great. Folks, its worth a try at your local pro shop. Els and Chan both carded bogey-free rounds of 67 to claim a tie for second. Poulter, who was forced to withdraw from the event last year after being unable to replace a driver which was stolen the previ- ous week in Shanghai, reached the turn in a solid two-under 33. And after recovering from his solitary bogey when he missed the green at the first, his 10th hole of the day, Poulter picked up three birdies over his last six holes to set a competitive first-round target. Conditions were set to deteriorate for the afternoon starters. Poulter added: It was nice.Ihavehadsixweeksoff anditwasgood to ease into a round of golf. I didnt know what to expect this week. I havepractisedprettyhardoverthelastthree weeks trying to get ready for seven weeks on the bounce. Its nice be able to come out fresh.
