    I hope I run like that when I'm 65. I did keep waiting for one of their legs to crack in half though.

    I think Jeff Demps caught up with the other dude and won.

    The other dude reminded me of Kerwin Bell running. :grin:

    That kick one dude had half way down the track made me think of Usain Bolt. He blew by the other one. :)

    On August 8th I climbed Mt. LeConte in the Smokies. I was feeling pretty good about climbing 2,700 ft in five miles until I got to the top and found an 85 year old man having a birthday party with 27 of his closest friends. (He was born on 7/8/28) I don't know what was more impressive the physical accomplishment or having 27 friends willing to climb 3,000 ft for your birthday party. By the way, his daughter told me it took him just over 3 hours. It took her husband a very out of shape 60 something year old 12. Other than less than much less than 12 I ain't telling how long it took me.

    You would really be impressed with the accomplishments of Earl Shaffer or Grandma Gatewood.

    At their pace, middle distance strategy came into play. This just in...Ben Johnson's best clean time gets the bronze.
