Last time I heard that joke, I fell off my dinosaur.– Paul, my brother.
I did it!
1 mile in 4:58! =D
And they all fall down.
Three of my personal records have fallen in track this year: 400m: 57.2 800m: 2:12 today. Holy shit I smashed my old record of 2:18. =D 1600m: 5:06 My goal by the end of this season: 56.5 in the 400m, and 4:59 in the 1600m. I feel like such a boss right now.

Mrs. DeWitt asked us today who our heroes were today. She pointed out how we idolize pop-culture stars, and don’t even know the name of the current general leading the war in Iraq. There’s such a disconnect between us and our nation’s leaders. Back in the mid 20th century, army generals, presidents, and government leaders were praised and looked up to. If she asked me, I...
I was born with an enormous need for affection, and a terrible need to give it.– Audrey Hepburn. (via Picture Quotes)
of a roaring engine is music to my ears. I love racing, even if digital simulation is as close as I can get. Someday, somehow, I’m going to learn how to race, and visit a track often.

Coach Ben and company were trying to find girls to give Max's number to.
Ben: How about that girl over there, Max?
Max: I dunno, she could be a fifty-foot-fakeout.
Ben: ...Good from afar, but far from good.
You don’t know how useful it comes in handy.– Ketan Patel.
A great way
to start spring break: I ran a mile in 5:09 today, which wasn’t too impressive. But my leg of the 4x400 relay was 57.2, a whole 0.8 seconds faster than I’ve ever run it before. Man I was so pumped. Now, I can finally get some sleep.
