I ran a 51.5 second 400M.
Not bad for a farm kid in a small town.

I remember moving to the small country town. I walked down to the track practice. Introduced myself to the coach. I said, "Hey, what do I need to do to get on the track team?". He laughed and said "What do you do?"

I told him I was fast but liked to run distance as well.

He said "Do you think you can run around this track in 60 seconds or less?" (it was dirt lol)
I said "Sure".

He looked at me and said "Ok - let's see it"

I was in street clothes. No warm ups. He got out his stop watch and a whistle. He said "ready?"

I said "Yep!"

He said "Go".

58 seconds later I finished to a bunch of "Holy ****! He did its!"

I won conference and district races. Even got to go to states. But, I met the kids who can run the ****ing thing in 57 seconds.

Now, how a person deals with that is a personal thing. For me, I used to count 4 seconds in my head. That was the difference between me and the fastest kids in the entire state. I was satisfied because I didn't leave anything on the table. Maybe I could have shaved off a tiny bit more time. But, I was never going to be the fastest. Good enough.

One more quick story about performance and striving for being "the best".

Switch gears to mountain climbing. I have climbed in some tough places in the alps. I have climbed with climbers who are recognized as being great. Am I great?

I can tell you what I was great at. Seconding.
I could get up a pitch and clean **** up faster than most people.
I was also fearless. Fun to be around. Mountain smart. Good mechanically. Knew my knots. Tireless.

Did I get picked because I was a "great climber"? Nope. But as a support guy, I was tough to beat. I did not care about trying to climb the route without "cheating". I was not that vain. It's tough. **** it. I am not going to waste 1/2 hour falling and retrying a move just because I don't want to touch protection. **** that. That's for the lead climber. Me? I am grabbing that piece "cheating" and getting past the thing that is beyond my ability.

The payoff? I got to climb some amazing routes and spend time in some awesome places that few people get to experience. Good enough for me.

Everyone should know their limits and accept them. The experiences and effort are far more valuable than the recognition of #1.

A low 50 second lap would have you in charge for a tuition charge. Maybe not UTEP or UT, but certainly you could have run at Angelo.
You have my attention, pm me for other things at your convenience.

That is excellent time, and you might have won state in Wyoming.
Is there a reason you did not run in college?

Soccer for the first year in college and then moved to Europe.
Running was something that was just part of me from when I was little. Running, riding bikes all that outside stuff.

Also, which one of you 400m dudes didn't think about Luke Skywalker when you rounded that last turn and headed towards the finish?

Switzerland for 2.5 years. Then the UK for 1.5 years. I would like to go back that direction. I am thinking of heading to France for a bit.

Then - it's time to start setting up the final base camp. Possibly with a remote somewhere like Costa Rica or Ecuador. Tick tock

Yeah. I feel the time is about right for me to start the planning in earnest. Just a quiet, safe place that I can retreat to so that I can finish off my years in peace and quiet. Probably spend some time elsewhere for parts of the year. I have always wanted to write. I miss puttering in a garden. Tending to some animals. I am warming up to the idea.

**** no.

Summertime is coming I'm pretty sure those sunny days will cheer you up.

Also if you're feeling like **** call the suicide prevention hotline and talk to someone. For real.

All 31 or 32 people need sit sit around in a big circle and smoke the peace pipe. With such a circle it's good to have about 3-5 going at once, inside an enclosed area like an igloo teepee or basement. Once you can't see the other side of the circle from all the smoke you know the job is complete.

I'm curious if Vindster got the jab?
Doesn't sound very suicidal if he did...
or maybe he knows and just wants to go out with an embolism a year later
