​Sprinting for your health ​

​In the early days of my youth, I wasn’t very athletic. One day, I was trying out for football and the coach made a comment to another coach “that kid was pretty fast in sprint drills,” of course the comment was directed toward me. That stuck with me and the following year I tried out for the track team and became one of the fastest sprinters in my area at the time. Sprinting was my thing and it became very useful as a physical conditioning tool and out running my bigger brother, who at the time was a city police officer. Long story on that last part, suffice to say he never did catch me.
