Running, eating and cheetahs

My good buddy Jing, did a nice write-up comparing my running and eating ability to a cheetah. While I am nothing like a cheetah literally or metaphorically, Jing makes a few very interesting discoveries (despite the pseudo-scientific nature of the calculations).

What I found most interesting was how linear my PR’s were from 60m to 500m. Also oddly, those two events happened to be above average. Definitely very strange.

My times are almost perfectly linear.

My times are almost perfectly linear.

Be sure to check out what Jing has to say about my metabolism relative to a cheetah’s too!

You Better Be Running

This is my favorite running quote ever:

Every morning in Africa, a gazelle wakes up. It knows it must run faster than the fastest lion or it will be killed.

Every morning a lion wakes up. It knows it must outrun the slowest gazelle or it will starve to death.

It doesn’t matter if you are a lion or a gazelle. When the sun comes up, you better be running.

Anyways, now I have to choose between running for a track club or playing football. Someone please choose for me:!:
