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
