5.61

I'm changing the date of this post so I can do the April awards
Ok. The settings were a little primitive, but I got my 1st 40 yard dash time tonight. 5.61 seconds. I am pretty sure I can improve on that time. Special thanks to mom, dad & the neighbor's dog 'big head' for helping out. Here's the video:

Wow! I didn't even see you! You were just a blue blur!!

Now that your runnings in order, maybe you should get your hearing checked; I doubt your coach will want to yell directions out at you twice. ;)

Well I thought you would be faster than that, you can get faster than that, i still think you can shave it down to a 5.4...

ummm sneakers might help u too...

i feel faster in bare feet. maybe it is just a feeling. but i'm not sure my sneakers would benefit me since i only buy 5 dollar wal-mart sneakers. or maybe i could switch to bear feet, but that is probably an expensive procedure too.

Actually Bears are pretty fast so switching to Bear feet although no doubt it would be a painful opperation it may benefit your speed.

The original Olympians were all barefoot, so perhaps there's something to that. Less wind resistance, maybe? Course, they had more than bare feet, and if you decide to go Olympiad, please don't post the video!

i already tried that, but, apparently, even YouTube has quality control standards.

You run like a GIRL!!!

I love the clip. Not only is it hilarious, but it makes me feel cooler just looking at the grass and the bare trees. (It's been in the 80's here all week.) But I do agree with Charity that you should wear shoes. It hurts my feet to hear you running barefoot.

Good luck on getted drafted.
