We love receiving photos of all your medals and each month our favourite will earn a free Medal Display and be featured in our Athlete Spotlight!
This month's featured athlete and winner of a new Medal Display is Michelle Cresswell!
Michelle told us she has always liked keeping fit and running but her first real taste of racing came in 2009 when she took part in a Race for Life.
Starting at 5K, Michelle's races increased in distance, first to 10K and then to 10 miles. She then went on to complete the challenge she had set herself, finishing a half marathon in the year she turned 40! The Birmingham Half-Marathon saw Michelle cross the line in a triumphant 2 hours and 49 minutes.
From there she joined a running club, West Bromwich Harriers, which really took her running to the next level and she was able to inspire friends to start running and taking part in races too.
These days you can find Michelle running with her latest recruit, 15 year old daughter, Emily. The pair have already conquered the Color Run and Pretty Muddy races together!
Speaking about her medals, she said " Showing what I have achieved just inspires me to train harder and run further."
The goal for 2017 is the big one... Michelle's first full marathon in October! What a great model and we're sure she'll be crossing that line in October making Emily, her friends and her club very proud!
