I saw this billboard about a week ago at Bleeker and Lafayette. It immediately caught my eye and it completely inspired me, even though I had no idea who Usain Bolt was (obviously I fell a little behind on my track and field knowledge during this summer's Olympic games). I did a little research and found out exactly how amazing this man is. He is barely 22 and won three gold medals this summer! He was the first person to break the world record for the 100 meter, 200 meter and 4x100 meter relay during one Olympics. By the way, this man isn't running alone in this photo, he is just that much faster than his competitors. With a name like Usain Bolt, I guess you have to be quick.

So inspired, I think I may be ready to sign up for a 40 mile bike ride in a couple weeks.
