    Well I think you’ve done enough to be the World masters athlete of the year, and probably the decade! Pity the 10k wasn’t on now (rather than the marathon).

  2. I second James’s nomination of you being named masters athlete of the year,a simply awesome display in Sacramento,well done

  3. Rob Jackson says:

    I would type a message, but it’s difficult to do, with my jaw having dropped onto the keyboard. Amazing run Keith! Without a pacer or a pack to work with. The accolades are just beginning.

    Nach math a rinn thu! Feumaidh tu bhith air do dhòigh le trì buinn òra. ‘ S e fìor ghaisgeach a th’annad, gu dearbh. Meal do naidheachd is abair farpais dhut-sa! ‘S airidh thu air a h-uile bonn òr a bhuannaich thu. Gur math a thèid leat anns a’ Mharathon!

    Keith,
    Congratulations on a phenomenal race today and a great meet overall. Glad you finally got that 1500m WR. It was a great pleasure meeting you and running against you is something I will always remember. Best of luck in the marathon and hope you got to meet Ron Robertson today.

    Regards,
    Tom Bernhard

    ….there has to be something a bit soft about those male 55+ world records that Keith has been flogging….surely…maybe needs a royal commission….look out marathon!!

  7. Gary Bowen says:

    Wow, what can I say, except AWESOME effort…
    To Lisa Harrison, the M55 records aren’t soft anymore, Keith has made sure of that !
