"Pass on your left!"

In 1954 Roger Bannister became the first person to run 1 mile in less than 4 minutes. (A feat some scientists at the time said was impossible.) This week marks the anniversary of his remarkable accomplishment.

While at the gym yesterday on her lunch hour Fabulous Babe did her part to celebrate Bannister's accomplishments. She walked one mile in 18 and a half minutes.

When she told me this last night she also admitted that the effort was probably more than she should have expended. Her victory celebration was cut short by the fact that she pretty much sacked out when she got home last night.

For Bannister there was glory and fame. For her efforts Fabulous Babe scored her favorite couch, her blanket and a bowl full of hot noodles.
