    I am only 60, but when I grow up I want to be as fit as Mr Taylor.
    In his lifetime he suffered from unreality, as do so many Englishmen.

    Yes, I was at Honister awaiting another attempt when Ken (Rossendale Harriers) arrived off L4 accompanied by Tindersticks of this parish and Scoffer (looked like he was wearing a pyjama jacket in proper BG style) .
    It was obviously going to be a sub 23 round - a man of half Ken's age would have been proud of the 22:21 in the prevailing heatwave.
    Ken has overcome some incredible setbacks over the years to both regain then maintain his fitness. Hard as nails. He has 'raised the bar' by 4 years for this particular BG record.
    Honister was something of a fellrunning 'celeb fest' with Billy Bland and Martin Stone there to 'give him a shout' and FRA chairman Nick Harris and Claire on road support.
    Chapeau Ken, a truly worthy record breaker.

    I was a bit of an oddball until I was abducted by aliens; but I'm perfectly OK now!

    Just checking and I see that there was a Ken Taylor who succeeded in 1998. He's registered this attempt anyway.

    Bloomin' impressive.
