Speed Walking

 volcanic activity somewhere in Hokkaido

Being the fastest speedwalker in the world is a big accomplishment.

It’s probably comparable to conquering the highest hill in the world!


note: I’m going to try out for the National “Speed Limping” team.

double note: Is the “standing broad jump” still around?
                           I was pretty good at that in my prime …ary school days.

triple note: the highest hill in the world is Cavanal Hill in Poteau, Oklahoma U.S.A. (according to wikipedia) registering in at 1,999 feet. I don’t think they really measured all the hills in the world though.

quadruple note: I’d mention the reigning world champion speedwalker, but really who cares that much. So … here is Bill Nye the Science Guy as “Speed Walker

  1. Would this be equivalent to being the reigning mini-golf world champion? 🙂

  2. I am one of the” fastest chocolate muffin eaters” in the world! Does that count for anything?-)*

  3. Ummm…
    Isn’t speed walking just running with a more trendier name ???

  4. I think I will stick to what I do best. Speed Mosey.


  5. Thanks for all the comments.

    nathaliewithanh: I’m still an amateur mini-golfer at the moment: the windmill is tough to get by.

    Doraz: Are you using regulation chocolate muffins?

    Tony: ummm… not really; it’s still walking, but more speedily. I’m not talking about “Slow Running”.

    prairieflounder: hee hee! I think I’d be a good Speed Moseyer.
