    Michael Johnson is my all time iconic legend and friend Denise Lewis.
    I have been a Marathon runner since 1985 115 Marathons. 101 half marathons and 4 10ks per year. I used to specialise in the Mile Inter Hospital events at school my events were 100m and later 400m my favourite distance. I think its safe to say its best to get a universal taste of sport then specialise. Therefore from choice your doing the sport you have chosen. John.M1002327.
