Life time pbs. These will never change!
100
12.0
200 23.7
400 52.2
800 1:57.2
1500 4:04.3
3000 8.47.3
5000 15:10.5
10000 31.57
half marathon 70.10
marathon 2:26.58

Most memorable results
. mile in 4:32.2 in 1965 at the age of 16, to win the SA interschools

. marathon in 2:30.05 in Queensland in 1978, to come seventh in the national championships on a "steam-bath" muggy day
. marathon in 2:26.58 late in 1978, to win the Canberra marathon for the second time and set an ACT open record
. Canberra "Distance runner of the year" in 1979
. 3000 metres in 8:47.3 in 1984, to set an Australian (and ACT) M35 record which still stands today.


So as you can see, I am highly unlikely to run any new pbs.
