鈥淚 decided I was going to find the best place in the world to run, and that was it,鈥?he told me as wewalked back to the hotel that night. 鈥淭he first view made my jaw drop. I got all excited because Icouldn鈥檛 wait to get out on the trail. I was so overwhelmed, I didn鈥檛 know where to begin. But it鈥檚wild out there. I had to give it some time.鈥? Yes, Mr. Powell, she is his wife; and more's the pity, if all tales be true! Very soon after this first design had been tried out, a second Vee type engine was produced which, at 1,200 revolutions per minute, developed 60 horse-power; the size of this engine was practically identical with that of its forerunner, the only exception being an increase of half an inch in the cylinder stroke鈥攁 very long stroke of piston in relation to the bore of the cylinder. In the first of these two engines, which was designed for airship propulsion, the weight had been about 8 lbs. per brake horse-power, no special attempt appearing to have been made to fine down for extreme lightness; in this 60 horse-power design, the weight was reduced to 6鈥? lbs. per horse-power, counting the latter as normally rated; the engine actually gave a maximum of 75 brake horse-power, reducing the ratio of weight to power very considerably below the figure given. No, thank Heaven! Not that; but perhaps the next greatest trial that could befall me, in the illness of a dear relative. The process is simple.

By George, I never heard of anything so outrageous! Five pounds! He's too modest. I haven't got five pounds, nor five minutes. I'm busy. Eric had recommended I begin my tribal makeover by heading down to Virginia to apprenticemyself to Ken Mierke, an exercise physiologist and world champion triathlete whose musculardystrophy forced him to squeeze every possible bit of economy out of his running style. 鈥淚鈥檓living proof of God鈥檚 sense of humor,鈥?Ken likes to say. 鈥淚 was an obese kid with a drop footwhose dad lived for sports. So as an overweight Jerry鈥檚 Kid, I was way slower than everyone Iever played against. I learned to examine everything and find a better way.鈥?
