After three months of eating pasta, drinking isotonic sports drinks and the odd bit of jogging to boot, Imagination designer Kevin ‘cheetah’ Palmer completed his first half marathon (13.1 miles) on 14 October at the Pepsi Max Human Race in Kingston-Upon-Thames.
His time? A respectable 1 hour 51 minutes, after narrowly beating a big pink rhino in a head-to-head sprint finish. Asked whether he would be ‘going in for the big one now?’, he replies, ‘If that wasn’t big, I don’t want to know what is’.
Palmer was raising money for Cancer Research.
