At age 30, I could not say that I had ever run a full mile. When playing soccer while younger, the running was in spurts. One of the main reasons I quit the volleyball team after junior high was that I could not meet the running requirements levied by the high school coach. I reluctantly admit that I even cheated on the running portion of the Presidential Fitness Test in grade school, skipping laps in the mile. I finally decided it was time I meet this challenge head on. No time requirements were set. I simply had to run a full mile, start to finish. I received motivation from the team of two camera operators and the driver in the car I ran behind. The accomplishment is documented with a video of me running toward the camera for a mile. The film is 12 about minutes long.
