Optima’s very own Curtis Bridge (above) donned his running gear and took part in the Stafford half marathon last week.
Our pacey Project Coordinator completed the first leg of his two planned half marathons and lived to tell the tale.
Not only finishing the event with flying colours, but knocking 30 minutes off last year’s time.
So what next for our very own Forrest Gump?
Well, he plans to compete in the Stoke-on-Trent half marathon later in the year and will once again be looking to smash his personal best.
But as well as a bit of fun and a good way of keeping fit, there is a serious side to Curtis’s fantastic efforts.
He’s raising money for the Blind Veterans UK (formerly St Dunstan’s).
