With One Shoe Untied

If you're one of probably many Americans who doesn't rank running among your favorite Olympic sports to watch, you might not know that Usain Bolt is now the fastest man in the world to run the 100-meter. He did it in 9.69 seconds, fueled only by meals of chicken nuggets, and with one shoe untied.

When asked what the day of the race had looked like for him, Bolt replied,

"I never had breakfast. I woke up at like 11 o'clock, sat around and watched some TV, had lunch, some [chicken] nuggets, then I pretty much went back to my room, slept again, then went back and got some more nuggets. Then I came to the track."

Needless to say, this guy is Nathan's new hero, since they have everything in common except for the running thing.

I'm headed outside to run five miles this evening, which will probably take me about 55 minutes, which suddenly seems so incredibly... lame.
