Track and Field


It's been seven years since I last competed in the 400 meter dash, but even today the thought of the event sends pangs of anxiety through me. Still, I miss that unique combination of euphoria and physical pain that can only be achieved by 50.7 seconds of all-out sprinting.

It's been nearly 16 years since my last competitive 400m (47.8s ;) ), and your description is so perfect! Even now, so many years later, I can still SMELL track and field in the air every spring, and it makes me ache--nostalgia and hamstrings. Well done.

I still miss seeing you run.

It's when you finish and your butt becomes uber sore, that you know you ran the race as hard as you can.

400 m is a tough one.

50 secs for 400 m is great actually.
Lot of people only believe in Gym these days
