The body works in fascinating ways. As spring hits around the country, warm weather is coming to most of the country, our bodies discover that they can run fast. A few races, and our bodies say, well, time to find warp speed. The work over the winter helped build your enduance, and your speed. You just needed some racing.
Some people take longer than others. I just needed 4-5 races to race over the mile and 6-7 to race over 2 miles.
Consider Scott Fauble, who yesterday ran 2:09.09 at Boston, finishing seventh. His 3 minute, 26 second PB was masterful and inspiring.
