Middle of the pack, perhaps slightly better than average, but no
gold.

That's about an 8.5 minute mile. Better than most people even try to do these days. A lot of people get winded climbing the stairs.

I'm 43 and I can do 3 miles in about 25 minutes so we're not far apart.

The U.S. Marine Corps standard for 17-26 year olds is 3 miles in 28 minutes. That's minimum standard, though. Top score is 3 miles in 18 minutes. Probably not going to happen for me unless I go to mostly cardio vs. mostly weights and only 1 day of cardio.

I don't pay attention to the standard for my age group. Just because I'm an old fart doesn't mean I have to work out like one.
