Run

The middle distances in track, 800 metres and 1500 metres, involve a running form as disciplined and internalized as operatic singing. Arms relaxed and bent at the elbows, rhythmic breathing, much attention to the lift and kick of the leg as the body moves forward. The level of performance determined through the continual act of remembering.
