Roger Bannister

Roger Bannister, the first human to run one mile in less than four-minutes, said:

“I sometimes think that running has given me a glimpse of the greatest freedom a man can ever know, because it results in the simultaneous liberation of both the mind and body…..  The runner does not know how or why he runs.  He only knows that he must run…..  We run, not because it is doing us good, but because we enjoy it and cannot help ourselves”. —  1956

Prior to 1956, people said running under four-minutes was essentially impossible for the human body to withstand.  There were others, like Roger Bannister, who knew it was inevitable.

Simply a matter of time before the impossible becomes possible, and then, before you know it, the impossible becomes business as usual.

Sometimes, I think certain things are impossible at mid-life.

Then I think about people like Roger Bannister.

And then I start to wonder when it will simply be, business as usual.

Make it a GREAT day, and may all your impossible dreams come true.  Carpe diem,  jeff noel 🙂
