“When this baby hits 88 mph, you’re gonna see some serious sh*t!,” Doc Emmett Brown played by Christopher Lloyd.

To my head distance track coach. “This delorean can travel  in time when it hits 88 mph!,” said by Dr. Emmett Brown. I sometimes used that line/ fact to pretend I was trying to run up to 88 mph to travel back to, say, Boris Karloff and Gloria Stuart’s day in Hollywood during 1930s, the birth of Christ, a possible future for when I retire, 800 years from now, etc. Technically, an equivalent would be 8.8 mph, including on a treadmill or elliptical, and running 11 mph is 1/8 of 88, equaling fast speed! Above 1/8 of 88 is 12: 60 / 12 = 5 x 3.125 = 15.625/ 15:37.5 running time, even faster than Ben Reed’s 15:44 and Tigger’s/ my dad’s nickname 15:42. Not as fast as Courtney Anne Rouse’s legendary 14:08! 

Coach William Leibfritz: Excellent advice, Jonathan!

Myself: Thsnk you a lot!

(Special shoutout to one of top best running friends, Anthony Ells, whose birthday is today on this posting. HBD, RUNNER!)
