Who is Faster Than Forty?

March 11th, 2011 in Articles by 0 Comments

Mark Gomes and Rick Miller created Faster Than Forty to provide practical training and dietary research for runners and other high-performance athletes. It doubles as a repository of news on Gomes’ Masters running career (hence the name), but athletes of all ages should benefit from the tools, data, and research.

Mark Gomes ran track and cross country at Northeastern University. An indoor specialist, Gomes captured the New England 1,000-meter title as a freshman and later established a school record in the event, clocking 2:24. In 2011, Gomes won the silver medal at the U.S. Indoor Masters National Championships.

Rick Miller ran track and cross country for Northeastern University. He has posted personal bests of 1:55 for 800 meters, 2:28 for 1,000 meters, 3:55 for 1,500 meters, and 1:12:48 for the half marathon. (He also once jumped 6’2” in the high jump, but no one believes him.) Miller continued to run competitively for several years after college and coached high school track.
