We are moving house on Friday so I was starting to pack a few things up and found a couple of shoe boxes under the bed with my running medals in. Unfortunately I cannot find my framed lace panels from the Nottingham marathon, 2 were signed on the back by Ian Thompson, one of my running inspirations.
Here are a few of them that bring back memories, especially as some of the races are no longer around.
The Barrow festival 10 miles, great course, a bit hilly, got my first sub 1 hour there (57:59).
3 London Marathons (1989, 1991 &2015)
The first Luton international marathon 1990 (2:48:59) where I finished in 19th place.
2 County medals, 10000m Silver and 3000m steeplechase bronze.
Charnwood A.C. Road running champion, Clubman of the year and athlete of the year plus club championship gold in 2000m steeplechase
Half a dozen from the ‘old’ Loughborough 1/2 marathon and a couple from the new 1/2 marathon.
Torbay 1/2 marathon 2011, 2nd V55.
Robert Bakewell 2.5 mile race 1st place.
LRRL summer league V55 2nd place.
And many more. 🙂
