Favourite medal: Boston Marathon 2011. This is my favourite medal for three reasons: Boston is the most historic modern marathon, I got a personal best time there, and I just think it's an aesthetically very pleasing object – from the unicorn logo to the colours and the thicker-than-average ribbon.

Some serious bling there.  Didn't Health and Safety have something to say about excessive weight round your necks!

He he he... I like Kerry's 'Face' - very 'Mr T'  - he's Bad Attitude... (hey, we've got an A-Team theme going on here - I love it when a plan comes together!).

He also seems to have a bottle of chilli sauce, some balsamic vinegar and possibly a bottle of tabasco sauce on his desk. Hence the expression?

Medals pahh!?

That just means you survived till the end

I want times. Splits. PBs

Photos of sweaty faces, muddy shoes, that killer "get out of my effing way" look in the eyes.

Red one at the front looks like Bracknell Half... but could be something else entirely,, Thats a lot of tin
Posted: 13/10/2011 at 12:36

Correct, it is the Bracknell Half. Coolest of all imho is the rectangular one hanging over the front of the shelf - Indian Queens Half.  Weighs a ton.

 Muttley wrote (see)

"I ain't gettin' on no plane.  Crazy fool!"

(Translation: I think I've exceeded my weight allowance.)

Nice one Muttley!
