Lane 8 passed the baton

Teddy Bear in track starting blocks
Lane 8, the outside lane, is the worst lane in the one-lap 400 meter sprint. You cannot see any of the other runners.

In 1999, i received a physical wakeup call from a medical report. It led to a decade of slowly and steadily regaining physical vibrancy.

Just realized that representing the USA at the 2009 Masters Track and Field world championships in 2009 was only four months after starting this prolific blogging habit.

Think about that. A decade of continuous improvement culminating in an impossible achievement.

Lane 8, the worst lane (and this website’s URL) for the 400 meters passed the baton to blogging and said, “go, do something impossible”. Only in hindsight can you see this.
