Christmas running calender, day 17:
One of the joys of running is that it doesnt operate along the limits of age as many other sports tend to do !In running - or atleast ultrarunning - you are still much too young when in your 30'ties. Perhaps you are peaking at marathon potential; but on 100km you are just beginning to hit the right age, for 24hours running you most likely are 10y. "too young" and on the 6days non-stop races runners peak at toplevel well into their mid. 40ties and 50ties ...as long as you keep stepping up the distance, running will have a challenge that you have "just the right age for" :-)
... Ofcourse you could then wonder if Im not a little too young for doing wr2 at age 38 or the wr1 when I was 33, ? But then again I started running marathons when 15years old (slow though, 3:26 h. back in 1985; yet its faster than the av. pace I do on world runs. As ultrarunning isnt about speed as much as 'knowing your body' - wich probably is why you can keep improving !)
But with that timeline of running I do expect to retire in a few years ;-))
