PART III THE FINER POINTS OF THE MIND-BODY METHOD EIGHT RUN BEAUTIFULLY People always notice my stride. Lucas Verzbicas WHEN IT WAS ANNOUNCED in August 2005 that Kenenisa Bekele would attempt to break his own 10,000 m world record in Brussels, Belgium, and that video of the attempt would be streamed live on the Internet, I made sure to tune in. Not only was I interested in seeing history made; I also simply love watching Bekele run. Some people would find the monotony of a man running around a 400 m oval 25 times unbearable. Not me. Few things are more beautiful than the stride of a great runner. Each runner’s stride is unique in its nuances, but in the stride of every great runner we see power and grace commingled in some fashion. In the same way that a great song, novel, or film can resonate with the masses, I believe that everyone can recognize a beautiful stride. Suppose you are watching a couple dozen runners of widely ranging ability levels running individually at a fixed, moderate pace for 20 seconds. If you were then asked to rate the stride of each for pure aesthetics, your scoring would probably correspond closely to the results of a performance test, such as a 5,000 m time trial, of the same runners. In other words, the runner with the most beautiful stride would also be the fastest, and so on down the line. In 2010 Lucas Verzbicas became the first sophomore to win the Foot Locker high school boys cross-country championship in the event’s 31-year history. This young man, who had already set a national high school record for 5,000 m indoors (14:18.22) as a freshman, not only won the race, but also utterly destroyed the other 39 boys in the race, all older than he was. Verzbicas stood out in another way, though. His stride was beautifulnoticeably lovelier than those of the slower kids. My astounded media friends and I were all struck by it. And Verzbicas himself was not unaware of it. “That is what people always notice and acknowledge about me is my stride,” Verzbicas told me after the race, answering my compliment in the aw-shucks manner of a Midwestern prom queen praised for her beauty, albeit with a slight Lithuanian accent (his family immigrated to the United States when he was 8).Are Bodyweight Exercises Effective?
