    Not quite a medal, but this came in the post all the way from America. Was a lovely surprise! Admittedly it was a small field, ten in my age category, but still really chuffed 🙂

    The accompanying letter asked me to “return and defend my victorious finish!” Now if they paid my flights….

    How lovely – that’s a nice surprise and a great memento of the trip – how many times have you checked the flights now ?? 😊

    Wow – certainly a nice surprise.  Maybe for elite runners like you they might give you an expenses paid invitation….?!

    That’s a great surprise to get Jilly, and far better than any medal.  Well worth considering defending it 🙂
