Today, I was interested in seeing how fast I could run one mile. The answer: 5:45. I'm more than just a little pleased with that, especially because I think I could bring that time down another 10-20 seconds the next time I go out. Because while I'm absolutely exhausted now (I did an hour or so of lifting after running that mile, so I'm just pooped) I wasn't dying at the end of the 5:45. But for perspective...the best indoor mile by a high schooler is: Alan Webb's time of 3 minutes, 59.86 seconds. So I have a ways to go before I get into the area where real runners workout. But I'm fine with that.
