Well done Rob! I think the bling gets addictive. I also have a good friend who is training for a marathon and needs a cabinet for all her medals. Very inspiring...but I am not tempted!

Before we all started the senior marshal decided to tell us all the wildlife we would see .. you could tell the new runners by the fact they were laughing at him thinking we would see anything but sweat & tears ! :)
