Back in 1993, I was a proud if not graceful member of the Randallstown High School track team. From this photo, it is clear that our mascot was a ram -- an animal that has to take VERY short steps to avoid falling off precarious mountain inclines. Rams also apparently need to put their manes in lovely French braids to allow them to better scale the terrain.
At a 5k last year, I showed that while I make the exact same attractive running face as I did 17 years ago, I do have better clothes and cover 2 feet with each stride...as opposed to 6 inches. Click here to take a look.
