Some are treasured because they were from a memorable race, such as the London to Brighton in the early 1990s, my first serious ultra. Others date from early career, such as the All Weather Running Club from my school in London. Still others are valued because they are reminiscent of a particular era in my running life, such as the Bacchus 12000 shirts earned on the trips with club-mates to Griffith in the early 1980s. Many just have a great eye-catching design, such as the Quivering Quads and Pere Marquette trail races from St Louis in the mid-1990s and several were given to me by people returning from events such as the 1981 World Cross-Country Champs. A number don't relate to running events at all, but are still meaningful, such as the souvenir US T-shirts that were all I could find to buy and run in (along with some fleecy shorts!) when my baggage got lost on a business trip to Washington DC.

No specific walking for exercise today, but I did play nine holes of golf which equates to about 5km (probably longer, the way I play).
