Running as fast as you possibly can
September 26, 2010
As a kid, I remember taking every opportunity I could to just break out in to an all out run. I wasn’t in a race. I wasn’t being chased by the cops or a rabid dog.
I was just running. As fast as possible, and for no other reason than fun. I would estimate that somewhere around the age of 17 most people will sprint their fastest for the final time. Then apparently we go into 50 some years of a cool down jog. When tiny little kids first figure out how to walk, the next thing they do is learn to run. They only know one speed. As fast possible. If we can run faster, why do we purposely choose to jog slower? That’s not fun. Running super fast is super fun. Fact. Don’t let it die.
