Staying inspired is a full time job or part time job?

Not all of you are runners. Some of you confess to not exercising regularly. It’s all good. We each find our own way. Live and let live.

How does one live an inspired life?

I submit we do it by paying attention. And using everything around us, including art.

Usain Bolt is an artist. World’s fastest human. Ever.

Yesterday in Stockholm, the two fastest men in the history raced in the 100 meters.

Usian Bolt from Jamaica and Tyson Gay from United States were meeting for only the third time ever.

Usain Bolt beat Tyson Gay at the 2008 Olympics, setting a world record in 9.69, and again at the 2009 World Championships.

Bolt currently holds the world record at 9.58.

Here’s the race. (they’re in the blocks at 7:00 minute mark if you want to fast forward)

As You Get Older Common Sense Is Elusive

Both Men Have It

Track Stadiums Are Everywhere
Track Stadiums Are Everywhere

In yesterday’s post Michael Johnson interviewed Usain Bolt. Both men currently hold world records.

Both men did something no other human has ever accomplished.

And on closer inspection, we find that off the track, they are fun-loving, casual, “normal” human beings.

On the track, polar opposites.

  • Michael = laser-focused, and dead serious
  • Usain = casual, almost comical

Whatever your health goals are, there is no one “correct” way to pursue them. We all need to remind ourselves that in fact, there may be many approaches over our lifetime.

We can learn a lot by watching others.  Others can learn a lot by watching us.  Knowing this, do you consider yourself a health example or a health warning?

World’s Fastest Humans

Usain Bolt, world’s fastest human, interviewed by Michael Johnson, former world record holder 200 meters and current world record holder 400 meters. What you can expect from this is a casual approach by two extraordinary humans. And even if you are not a runner, you have the opportunity to see best-in-class and look for ways to adopt their attitude and approach into your own approach:

Only One Man In History

Humans Are Born To Run
Humans Are Born To Run

Significant human achievements, especially “firsts”, are rare. And they are rare because no human has ever done such a thing before. If we are lucky, we may see a few in our lifetimes.

What comes to mind from your own experience?

Tyson Gay, second fastest human ever, in the history of the world, is the ONLY human to run:

  1. sub 10 in 100 meters
  2. sub 20 in 200 meters
  3. sub 45 in 400 meters

A few weeks ago, Tyson ran a 400 meters PR 44.89, to set the milestone above.

If you enjoy Track & Field or have a curiosity about the current hype between Tyson Gay, Usain Bolt and Asafa Powell – the three fastest humans of all time are running in the same lifetime, in the same meets – then you will probably enjoy this article from IAAF.org
