Always Aiming High

“Age is an issue of mind over matter. If you don’t mind, it doesn’t matter”

So said the great American author Mark Twain. To back this up I give you Stephen Charlton and Louise Gilchrist. You have probably never heard of these athletes and neither had I until I decided to look at the British Masters Athletic Federation UK records for veteran road runners. It makes inspirational reading. On their respective 70th year Stephen and Louise set UK records of 37:55 secs and 45:50 secs for 10K on the road.

That gives us all something to aim for, and if you beat the records at 70, it’s ok, as they go up to age 90!
