Went to Strensall this weekend and passed my TA RSW at 40 years old. I thought I'd be outdone by all the 18 year olds who were there mouthing off about run times and joining the Paras/Marines/SAS. In the end I came in with a run of 9.35 beating the vast majority of youngsters who mostly wheezed in around 12 minutes or over (or not at all in some cases). Got an A grade overall. So there may be 2 morals to this story... 1. They'll accept anyone into the TA (including this old duffer) or 2. Don't believe the rubbish people mouth off about - if you want something - 'just do it'.
