Seriously, put your stop watch away. Do you not understand that finishing is the goal? Are you ready for a sarcastic comment? Sometimes I think to myself, "Man, running fast has to be so cool."
Where does running fast get you? Do you go out on your street and demonstrate your raw speed?
I'm trying to remember the last time I was in a group of people and someone said, "See that person over there, they run really fast." If you haven't picked up on it the BIG man has been mocking the fast person since their glory ran out in fifth grade recess.
