Things to Make me Feel Bad About Myself: Part I

An eight-year-old girl just completed a 2,200 mile, 55 day run across her native China. Holy crap! When I was eight, I was bemoaning the 50 jumping jacks I had to do to pass the President's Physical Fitness Test at Lemon Avenue elementary. Her father said he was training her for the Olympics in 2016...when I will be almost 40 and still struggling to run more than a mile at any given time. Is it just me, or is this a perfect example of why the Asian countries will rule the world in 20 years?
