Notes & Transcripts

            Now, here is what I find so interesting about the Roger Bannister story.  Within ten years after Roger Bannister broke that record, 336 other runners had broken the four-minute-mile record as well!  Think about that.  For hundreds of years, as far back as statisticians kept track-and-field records, nobody ran a mile in less than four minutes; then, within a decade, more than three hundred people from various geographic locations were able to do it.  What happened?

            Simple.  The barrier to running a four-minute mile was in the athlete’s minds.  For all those years, runners believed what the experts were saying.  They were convinced that it was impossible to run a mile in less than four minutes.
