If you can fill the unforgiving minute
With sixty seconds' worth of distance run --
Yours is the Earth and everything that's in it,
And -- which is more -- you'll be a Man my son!
-- Rudyard Kipling
Rudyard Kipling was a 4:30 miler!!
(from "Once A Runner" by John L. Parker, Jr.)
Thanks to Mike and Andrew I now have something to read over the holidays.

Note for the record: the ladder and I fell Wednesday while removing snow off the roof. Minor scrape on shin with bruising on left glute and lower back.
