Last week Daniel Komen ran the fastest ever mile on American soil at the Prefontaine Classic in Oregon. It was not a world record but it was a blazing sub 4 mile – 3:48.28 to be exact.
When I looked up the Prefontaine Classic’s history I discovered that Daniel Komen still holds the World’s Record for the 2 mile at 7:58.61, a record he set 10 years ago. So in 10 years the guy has barely slowed down at all. Of course when it comes to setting world records a 100th of a second is significant but when you think of his performance relative to what you and I do he has appreciably kept the same pace.
So keep running! You aren’t getting older – you are getting better, year by year.
