Fitness & Nutrition: A friend of my family’s once had some trouble in his neighborhood. It was during the holiday season, and some foolish youths were pilfering some of the seasonal ornaments from lawns throughout the neighborhood. With this in mind, our friend had his eye out for the mischief makers. Early one morning, while readying for work, he spied one of the teens snagging a pair of Christmas decorations from his lawn. Shoes already on, he dashed out the door and began pursuit.
The young thief started to sprint, still clutching the ornaments. He was faster than our friend, not surprising considering that he’s nearly twenty years younger. After a quarter of a mile, though, the kid is still being chased, trying to make away with the stolen property. Our friend, barely breaking a sweat, called out, “You’re never going to outrun me. Just give me my stuff back.”
