Just like Roger Bannister

A little piece of sports history this morning…

On July 1st, 1945, Gunder Hägg of Sweden set the record for a one mile run. On that day he ran the mile in 4::01.3. He held the record for the next NINE YEARS until Roger Bannister of England became the first man in history to run the distance in less than 4 minutes. (3:59.4) Bannister’s record run stood for SIX WEEKS!

I feel a little like that.

On my last run, I FINALLY ran at an 8:00 mile pace. (That sound’s so pitiful!)

Well, this morning I beat Monday’s time by 17 seconds!

And, to top it all off, I am actually starting to feel like I am…

RUNNING!

…as opposed to jogging.
