The human body is a remarkable vessel capable of impressive action,
best displayed within the course of running a statute mile. A
milerembraces a style of running that demands all of her or his
faculties: physically, mentally and spiritually. To watch a mile
race is to watch an extreme form of performance art, but it is also
to behold the beauty and wonder of the human body, in motion, as it
was meant to be: running fast, and hard, moving smoothly with
purpose and a searing determination that is a wonder to behold.
