For those that remember former member Kevin Archer, he recently sent Nat the following update on his athletics:

 

Hello Natalie,

One of the reasons you’re so hard to forget is that last December time you were appearing regularly in the Athletics Weekly results, ‘stalking’ and even beating some of my former rivals, good athletes as well. I didn’t write to say well done then, because I was a bit injured, and didn’t want to make you big-headed. Now, I see your ladies team got the bronze at the Surrey Road Relays, so well done for that too. Of course, my Indoor and Outdoor track seasons did pick up, so I thought I’d do a bit of bragging too! I’ve probably missed loads of other good performances you’ve done, so hit me with them to get your own back, if you want.

I’ve had a stellar year.

Indoors - South of England 800m title (just did the one race); Inter Area 800m/1500m titles; silver in the British Champs (feeling rough, and defeat since avenged).

Outdoors – I won the Westminster Road Mile for the second year in succession, at the end of my age-group, beating Lord Sebastian Coe again (he's 3 years younger, but perhaps he wasn’t trying quite as hard as me?!

On the track, I did the South West and South of England 800m/1500m doubles; Inter Area 800m (just the one race); British Champs double. British lead 800m time by 8.74 secs, with 2:21.66, which is 2nd fastest all-time; 1500m by 8.9 secs, with 4:50.98 which is 3rd fastest all-time British run. British track Mile record 5:241 (still a soft record). World Champs 800m 4th, and 1500m, silver recently in Malaga. Now I’m full of the ‘flu and possibly a urinary infection, or heaven forbid something worse!! The ups and downs of stardom, eh! One of my long-time German rivals took a picture of us and sent it to the German press, so I am internationally famous now.

From June, my rise to fame was mainly because I moved into a new age-group (so I thought, you’re running against old men here, make it count!) Did you move up age-group?

Do you have a club house there? If so, be a sport and organise a plaque in my honour would you?!!! Well, perhaps not, but say hello to anyone who remembers me. I remember you once said, leaning over the balcony, just like Juliet, that you would be looking after me in a few years. Where are you now, when I’m just recovering from death’s door?!

I will still have to come and do the parkrun one day.

Best Wishes and happy running,

Kevin.

Photo shows me finishing 2nd in the World 1500m final, 7 secs clear of bronze.
