Just brutal...

Thanks to my friend Alison Wade of, I was steered to a new running web site called, which has among others, Mary Wittenberg, Chris Lear, Toni Reavis, Matt Taylor, and Lauren Fleshman as contributors.

One item posted that piqued my interest was a video of Carl Lewis, the nine-time Olympic gold medalist, and perhaps the greatest track and field athlete of our generation.

For your viewing pleasure, here it is, courtesy of YouTube, Carl Lewis' video, "Break it Up":
