Can’t help everyone

At Angell Field, I watched a large man, very possibly a member of the Stanford track team, sprinting with what looked like bad form.  He seemed to be overstriding – was airborne surprisingly long.  “Hang time” doesn’t win you awards on the track, and you don’t get forward thrust when you’re airborne.  I’m pretty sure he would have been smoother, faster, and more efficient with a quicker stride.

I wanted to help him.

Fortunately, self-preservation kicked in, and I stuck to my own workout, which I ran slower than intended, thanks to an arithmetic error.

Later, I noticed Cal bike jerseys for sale at Palo Alto Bicycles.
