The 57 year dash.

I may have told you this before, but I was the fastest kid in the fourth grade.

It became a proven fact when I won a race off at recess against Steve Yauk – the fastest boy in the fourth grade.

Back then we ran the 100-yard-dash in gym class.  To get the President’s Physical Fitness Award. And I was fast.

Now that I am much older, I can hardly run 100 yards at all without my knees or ankles seizing.

Time dashes differently than we do.

We get slower and it gets faster.

  1. Oh my God what memories your brought back with your post! I too was the fastest girl in my 4th grade class and had a showdown with the fastest boy were we drew a tie on the 50 yard dash. I remember that Presidential Fitness award too signed by Ronald Reagan!
