"You're never too oldu201d is a saying I have been reminded of, all too often recently. While struggling through the Moscow marathon, I watched a 70 year old man in denim shorts and bare feet cruise through the 42.195 km as if he'd just nipped across the beach to buy an ice cream. Soon after this, I marched slowly to the top of Mount Kilimanjaro where I was joined by a sixty-something Danish couple whose only observation following the gruelling 7 hour night hike to the summit, was that they'd perhaps climbed too quickly as they'd beaten the African sunrise.
I have been inspired by the passion and sense of adventure that people around me have displayed and hope that by challenging myself, my friends and the youngest half of the British International School in Moscow, 5x50 can be the start of something exciting for us all and we can prove that in fact, "You're never too young!u201d
