4:20

Now that I have your attention.  I do go on about my old  buddy Sean Wade.  It was 20 years ago that he won my Run For The Arts 10 Mile in a fast 47:55.  One oh three thirty half marathon pr.  Commonwealth Games Steeplechase for his native New Zealand.

He’s just a few trips around el sol before he hits a major milestone, his  fiftieth birthday.

He won the 40-49 age group at the recent Fifth Avenue Mile in a very fast 4:25.

In February and the big five oh, he’ll take a crack at running sub 4:20.

For all you aspiring and struggling milers, here is  a link to his workouts:  http://www.runnersworld.com/masters/can-a-50-year-old-run-a-420-mile
