A giant hat

Dan Chard arrived at lunch time armed with 24 krispy kreme doughnuts and in passing mentioned a story from the weekend. Dan and his dad spent 2hrs 50mins "running" the Bracknell Half Marathon - which is a Personal Worst for Dan (he was a 1:30 guy).

"It was my slowest by a long way but since I'm fairly unfit at the moment anyway I was faced with the decision to either run a fairly mediocre time or stick with my dad and face the strong possibility of coming last. But although my dad and I did literally come last, I was glad I chose to stay at the back with him as he would have really struggled without someone else to carry the hat when he wasn't wearing it!"

I think Dan and his dad finished the race as winners.
