Hi readers, my name's Steve Boardman, my mates call me Boardfish. I started running last August just after turning 40. My wife entered a marathon and decided it wasn't for her because of the time constraints of training and bad knees so I took her place and love it. I completed the Chester Marathon in 4h15mins after 6 weeks of training.
Since then I've carried on running regularly and ran a half marathon in 1hr42 in Jan. It got me thinking I wish I'd started 20 years ago, but so what nothing I can do about that. So what about setting myself a challenge, how fast could I run a half marathon and full marathon if I took my running seriously, trained hard, the right nutrition, training plans, gym work, etc. Basically for someone starting running at 40 how fast could they become. It would be good to hear fellow runners advice, tips, feedback, their stories and experiences or anybody who wants to help me.
I love a challenge, I'm very determined and positive person so here goes, I'll stop waffling, I'm off for a run.
