Sun Salute To Andy Ward
RE: Be inspired: Meet Andy Ward: The Brit had a 30:20 age pb from age 25 to 44. Now he's sub 30:00
Great story. The cynics among us surely find it easy to say this is more an indication of a wasted opportunity than a remarkeable story, as if raising one's kids is really a wasted opportunity.
Could he have run 28:00 for 10K 20 years ago? Maybe, with the right training, but the 90's were a rough time to be an elite runner in a lot of places of the world. Him running faster now than 20 years ago is also a good indicator that the average runners knowledge of what it takes to run fast has gotten better.
TUE or not, dude is fast and having fun, good for him.
