Bannister Day


I never thought that May 6 would be a significant day in the running world. All the while Cinco de Mayo is enough for me to stretch out my feet on the couch and watch my fave TV series. But no, today is Bannister Day!

You may say, who the friggin’ six ounce of salsa is he? Or what is it, in the first place? For one, Bannister is a dude.First name Roger, today marks the 56th anniversary when he was the first man to run the mile under four minutes.

Even I am having a hard time to reach that time! Anyways, here’s to that heroic effort. And for those who want to watch a video on that ‘event, here it is.
