You ran the 600 yards in indoor and as a presidential fitness test?

Was this when we were still trying to get to the moon?
I love peeps

funny, we all ran the mile.

most disgusting thing ever after I finished and the teacher wouldn't let me leave, had to watch all those fatties slap the meat around the track.

absolutely disgusting. Fat people are the anti-christ.

the 1:25 was in 10th grade gym class, not as a part of the team.

The other time was in an indoor meet and they actually had a 600 yard run.

When I was in middle school and they had the Presidential Fitness Test, I was a chubby little prepubescent boy. I could barely do one pull-up, and I totally sucked in the 600 yard run. In the 6th grade, I could not run a mile at all. In the 7th grade, I could run one, but the time was 9:47. Yes, NINE 47, for ONE mile. I started jogging by myself a few times a week and then my best mile time was 6:30 in my 8th grade year.

Ran an 11 flat 100 yards in 9th grade on the street during gym class.

I could have been a contndah, but self esteem issues and a horrible home life kept me from competing.

No clue, but I think in the 7th grade I could only run a 100m in 17 sec. Heck my frosh year my 800 PR was only 2:20.

We all know those 600yd. tests were not very accurate. Remember running 1:27 in the 8th grade to break the school record only to find out days later that the kid in the next gym class ran faster.

Ran 1:12.7 in college.

We only did the Presidential fitness tests in elementary school, and we ran a mile. The only time I remember was 7:58 in the fourth grade. My best event was the pull ups though, where I could rip off about 35 straight. That was a shit load better than anybody else in the school, except for one kid who could do around 40.
