  1. David, now, 90 days later, I’m able to run a 5:50 mile at will. About every two weeks, I do a “time trial” on the highway where I run.

    The goal is to go under 6 minutes without killing myself. generally, it’s around 5:50.

    This summer, fingers crossed, I hope to compete and see what happens. is 5:30 possible? We’ll see. πŸ™‚

  2. Congratulations! Isn’t it funny how we are wired to be always on the improve? I am generally not a competitive person AT ALL, but I’m constantly trying to beat my last best time… I’m glad I’m not alone in this phenomena — otherwise I might think I was some sort of an obsessive/compulsive amateur athlete… πŸ™‚

  3. Natalie, it’s human DNA to improve. To find better ways to stay safe from the saber tooth tiger. Better ways to hunt the wooly mammoth. Better ways to survive winter. Better ways to grow crops that resist disease, drought, and yield more. Cures for incurable things. Faster, safer ways to transport things/people…

    Running or other non-life-threatening things are the layperson’s opportunity to do small things with great love. πŸ™‚
