If your goal isn’t impossible

From the top of the highest ski jump ramp in Lahti, Finland – site of the 2009 (i turned 50) Masters Track and Field World Championships.

If your goal isn’t impossible, you’re not reaching high enough.


My goal was (and still is) to run from Lane 8, the worst lane in the 400 meters.

Lane 8 is assigned to the slowest runner.

Lane 8, because the runners stay in their lane the entire race (one lap), are blind to the rest of the competition.

The worst lane.

And i don’t care if i come in last.

Think about it.

Lane 8.

In the finals.

At the World Championships.

Come in dead last and still be the 8th fastest in the world.

Pretty cool.

Impossible, really.

Which is perfect.
