Roger Bannister was the first person to run a mile in under four minutes.
It happened in 1954, and until that time, no one believed it was possible. Running experts, physiologists, doctors–they all had “proof” that it couldn’t be done.
Until it was.
Most interesting to me, though: after Bannister accomplished this feat, he was followed by twenty-four other people . . . within just eighteen months.
Dream about something impossible today.
Babies come. But babies don't go. Get Fights You’ll Have After Having a Baby: A Self-Help Story on Amazon now.
Great example of belief, and when one person does the impossible, lots more find they can too. Now many high school athletes find they can run a four minute mile.
I have heard that! And running is not like some other sports, where equipment has changed over time. It’s just legs~
Thank you Mollie one more time for inspiring us! we are dreaming today 🙂
THAT has always been one of my favorite stories to show people you can do “impossible” things. Thanks for posting and reminding me.
