Maybe Adam could draw inspiration from another former XC great, Carlos Lopes.
After his 1976 World XC title, Lopes kinda disappeared, partly due to injuries.
Then in 1982, at the age of 35 he ran 27:24 to break the European Record in Oslo.
At the age of 36, he made his marathon debut in 2:08:39 in Rotterdam.
Then a year later at 37, he won the World XC title, ran 27:17 and set and Olympic Record in winning the marathon in LA.
And finally at 38, he set the WR in the marathon, running 2:07:12.
No reason Adam couldn't do the same thing!
Lopes also worked full time as a banker.
