    No matter how I got to the station, I was fater than her.

    1.No matter how I got to the station, I was faster than her.

    2. However I get to the station, I was faster than her.


    Are the both sentences correct?

    (Not a Teacher)

    Your tenses don't agree in the second sentence, but besides that, you're fine.

    Note that you'll find many people who insist that only "than she was" is correct. I ignore those people.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.

    So do I, as I ignore those who insist on "faster than she" (without "was").
