(Ha!  As a young boy, I was actually pretty fast.  One of the big boys in the neighborhood used to organize these track and field games, for all us kids.  This one girl, who was about a year and a half younger than me, was the fastest thing on two feet . . . except when she ran against me.  I would always just beat her.  Apparently, even at that young age, she had a crush on me.  She passed away, way too young.  I think of her often.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
