Our Little Project

This Track and Field team of mine, this little Project... it's killing me, ArG! But I am starting to like it. Two more months, two more months, two more months. She-it, I can stand on my head for two more months.

And the progress, Let me tell you about progress:

Last night:
One guy, came in dead last in the mile, BUT he had never been under 7 minutes before- 6:29! That's right, Personal Best by 34 seconds, I am so proud of him.

Another guy, came in second to last, BUT he had never been under 6 minutes before, 5:55 baby! He did not believe me when I told him his time.

One of the girls, came in a way distant fourth. Never been under 7 minutes before, 6:54!

Oh, yeah, and one our ladies won the mile, 5:50!

All of these fine student athletes are also on my cross country team. Well, shoot, they are learning something, and I'm am tickled pink with their progress energy!

What do all these students have in common?

They can all run a mile faster than me!!!

That's why I could never teach high school...at least all of my students now are slower than me.

I know, I know...I'ved dropped and given 20...

And then there's this other guy, Chase Squires, he averages 17 minutes a mile ... sigh.

Hey, I could put you through some workouts, get you down to 15 minutes for one mile in no time! Really, I believe I can do that, because I believe you can do that!

17 minutes. Shoot, I can run a mile in 11 minutes. Once. Okay, twice. Chase, you, Andy and the utlra crowd do it for 98 more of 'em. Remember, the legend of the Battle of Marathon was that the Spartan ran 26.2 miles to deliver his one word report "Nike" (victory). Then he died. You ultra guys and gals do that about four times in a row. And you ain't dead yet.

That's cause the Spartans didn't know about Gallowalking or Team-in-Training (go team!!! PUNCH!!!!).

ah, the power of viral marketing, even back then ... I'm sure Asics wished they'd a thought of that.
