Darren Worlock promotes sub-4 dream on own site
If Darren Worlock comes close to running a sub-4 mile at 40, he can thank his own Web site for helping push him out the door to training. Gotta fan the flames! Darren writes on the site: “Easier said than done? Well, yes, especially as like most people I have a full time job, family, friends and social commitments to maintain. However, with effort I think itвЂ™s possible and I have set up this website in the hope that it will: (1) Encourage anyone who is interested to join in and beat that magic number. (2) Over time give information on my progress, training techniques and provide an outlet for some of the вЂњpainвЂќ I am sure to experience (3) Provide useful links, information and a contact point for veteran athletes.”
Darren also writes:
Joking aside, I am very well aware of the mountain that I have to climb to achieve my goal, but I think a lot of people are missing the point. Whether I can do it or not (and I still think I can) itвЂ™s a great life challenge, a heck of a journey and if I can inspire just one other person to get out there and have a try, well then it was all worth it.
I just canвЂ™t help but think that some of the coaches and other runners out there should perhaps concentrate on their own training and goals rather than criticising mine. You never know, they may be looking the wrong way one day one when some 40+ year old man comes running past.
