Bloody hell, the Athena poster was shot in 1976 and the model, Fiona Walker (nee Butler) is now 61... (not in my head she isn't!)

Malc will know your exact time, finishing position and what you were wearing

The worrying thing is that namesake's dad was an up and coming runner when I was a team manager, and he is now over 60.

There was a competitor on the Invictus Games that won a couple of golds who had been badly injured in Afghanistan. I think he lost a leg. I happen to share the same name.

A woman who was a complete stranger contacted me on Facebook, saying my story had been a huge inspiration to her, in the sense that if I could fight my way through what I'd been through and become an athlete, she can make it through all the stuff in her life, such as the breakdown of her marriage and the death of her parents. And all sorts of other personal stuff that she'd had to cope with over the last five years. Sounded lime she'd really been through it.

Quite difficult to put together a reply which was sympathetic, yet at the same time went along the lines of "sorry love, wrong person".

I always seem to get quite a few random friend requests after the Invictus Games.

When we were kids my mate's family home phone number was one digit different to the old Old Bill station on Le Mans Crescent.

The phone would go regularly and it'd be some old dear or old fart ringing to complain about kids sitting on their wall or similar - if no adults were about he or I would put on a gruff 'adult' copper voice to comiserate with them a while before telling them to mind their own business and piss off as we were too busy solving real crimes.

There was someone done for being lewd who had my name and who works nearby. He also had a private reg.

"Local sex pest businessman" was the headline in the town rag. Thankfully I don't work in Bolton.

One of the lads lifted through Operation Gamma had the same name as me. Way back then didn't make any difference to me. But in this day and age with social media, etc - could've have been slightly problematic.
