Exmouth Harriers Jamie Palmer lined up for the metric mile (1500metres) at the County Championships in Exeter, writes Dave Eveleigh.
There were two races and Palmer was second in the B race, as well as taking the County Silver medal in the over-40 category.
His time of 4:24 was a season’s best by seven seconds.
The following day he was in a veritable sprint race finishing second in an all-veterans version of that lactic acid factory of an event, the 800 metres!
His time was a respectable enough 2:11 and he took County Gold in his particular category.
