Medal Monday

To beat the lockdown blues…. For a daily exercise our members are choosing to run a route local to their house in our club colours. When they get home we have asked them to take a selfie with their favourite medals…

Here is Kevin Ford starting things off…

My Two best medals. Bronze round one is for the London Marathon in 1987 (The first one) and the Silver one is for Edinburgh Marathon in 2017 (My latest one.) Both are special, for different reasons

Kev has been injured for 9 months, and after a steady return helping our C25k team prior to lockdown, he comes back with a bang with a sub PB time for his first three miler… Top Work.

Kev couldn’t find his Marathon day pics for 1987, but in searching he came across this Bournemouth Half Marathon 1987 training run and noted a scorching 78mins best ever time.

We may not be able to race but we can get out our bling!
