I am a 44 yr old 16 stone bodybuilder, 5 ft 9 with thighs the size of tree trunks and very pleased with my average times of between 28-29 mins on my Saturday morning 5 k parcruns. I come near the back and smile to myself when all those stick insects fly past me and I wonder if they could bench 140 k in the gym like me. 

I'm a bodybuilder like you, Chris. But I must admit I get very jealous when I see those fast runners with those lean bodies., I'm a bit of a lump, big thighs and arms, and I basically only do bodybuilding because I am compensating for my small penis. I wish I was a better runner, but I guess I'll just have to be satisfied with lifting lumps of heavy metal repeatedly! Still, I don't half fancy myself in a mirror.
