Immature Runners!!

Seems there is a forum for the more mature runner, I thought it only fair that there was a forum for the younger ones on here!

Im 21, and started running about this time last year, just to keep fit, but have since ran in a Half Marathon, and have two races coming up in the next two months.

Maybe we can 'grow old' together on here, and learn from each others experience/inexperience!

So any young 'uns out there?


  • yes.. (oh whats the upper age limit by the way?)

    but we don;t have the stamina to maintain a thread.. there have been about 3 before :D
  • You can improve stamina, practice makes perfect!!!

    Upper age limit - as long as you don't 'feel' old... and the fewer grey hairs the better! ;-)

  • Lets see how long the younguns can keep this thread going.
  • They'll never keep it up ladies, why not pop into the Mature thread for a cup of tea and a muffin?
  • I'm young, isnt that interesting?..
  • Does 27 count as young? I'm one of the youngest at my running club.
  • NessieNessie ✭✭✭
    [perks up at the mention of tea and muffins, and wheels couch out again]
  • Muttley got it right!
    Only way this one will keep going is by us 'oldies' popping in for a 'teabag' from time to time.
  • lol, sabotaged already by the foggies. Running against the tide Jamer :) Instead of calling it 'Mature Runners' they should have called it 'Post Office Q'.
  • You know where it says :- 'Report this thread to the moderator'

    Does an 'ageist' thread count??
  • [leaps in a very youthful way over all the older gentlemen]

    yo, dudes.

    party on.

    I'm listening to a Feeder CD.

    And my jeans are too long.
  • Was the original 'Mature Thread' a test to see if they could?
  • Age-ist?!? Shurrup Knackered Knees! Double standards or what, oldies can have a thread but we cant?.. Whatever, talk to the hand... ;)

  • My My touchy aren't we!

    But then I'm used to it with sons aged 22 and 25!!

    I'll check back at about nine this evening to make sure they're all tucked up safely.

    And to turf out any Mrs Robinson types.
  • oi!

    Official forum age of 19 so I probably fall in here.
  • Im half joking bud, its just I have been the victim of post moderation by RW.
    It was when I slagged off a London based podiatrist, who was later struck off for bad practice btw, on this forum.
    I dont like those little thought-police emails from Rodale publishing, and hence dont fancy any more in my mailbox as a contributer to this thread.
    Ahhh, thats the end of my tantrum, better get the Calpol...
  • GAvo?


    # coo coo ca choo hmmmm hmm hmm hmm hmm #
  • not thought-police, sweetie - more protecting their (and thus our) legal interests.
  • Like - I mean - that's what my mum would say - d'uh!
  • Ah, but I didnt mention names, & I was right. It was only because the rogue advertised in RW... £££ involved, what a suprise...
  • 29
    mental age of a two year old
    fitness of a 96 year old in a care home

    do I count?

  • Yes, I'm glad this thread has been started. I was getting a little bored talking to older people.

    I'm 19
  • And I'm 92 !
  • You'd better put a barbed wire fence around it !

    Goodness what that'd do though.

  • Well it seems the 'oldies' ;-) don't like us young rebels!!

    But they should all be having their mid afternoon nap around now, so we should have a bit of peace and quite for a while!
