Michael Johnson 1996 Olympic 400m Finals

Michael Johnson in the 1996 Olympic 400m FinalsWatch the clip here.

This is the same race I run, 400 meters.

Many Track & Field enthusiasts say that the 400 is the sports toughest event.

While many Baby Boomers are running 5k’s, 10k’s, half-marathons and full-marathons, I’m running one lap – 400 meters. 

That’s almost absurd.

Until you step on the track as a 50-year old and try to run one lap in 55 seconds.

Make it a great day.  Life is full of surprises.  I hope today, for you, they are good surprises.  Carpe diem, jeff noel  🙂
