No clue on 100 yards, but my fastest 2 miles was 13:40...

THe last time i was clocked a 100 yards was in high and that far too long ago for me to remember. It was nothing spectacular though. Now I only have about a 20 yard dash left and I'm reluctant to do that.

Being 6'5" with a 36" inseam makes it a bit easier to maintain that pace but it still gives me a pretty good workout!

Really good looking young girl comes into the gym and the old guy asks the trainer what machine he should use to impress her. The trainer told him the ATM.

If I tried to sprint a 100 yds. elderly protection would throw a net over me for being a danger to myself or others. And as another poster said, "unless the building is on fire", I don't get that far from the door.

Back in 72 in high school it was about 10.5 for 100 yards. Not the fastest on the track team. Ran 120 yard high hurdles and 180 yard low hurdles. 15.1 and 20.6
Had a 21-1 win loss record in those races but we were a small school and competed against small schools. Have not run a timed 100 since but try to stay in shape. Still run at 65 years old. Knees are fine. Have run three marathons, hiked 521 miles across Washington on trails. Hiked the 2660 mile Pacific Crest Trail. All starting at about 60 years old. I have been very lucky with the knees, joints, and overall health. Now I am reaching an age where anything can happen with health. I will just keep going as long as possible. Wish the eyeballs were as good as the knees so I could still use open sights for shooting!

I ran 100 meters, which are 109.4 yards, in 12.3 seconds and got under 12 when I borrowed the running shoes with cleats from a friend. Now I have a personal trainer that keeps me fit but age has taken its toll. We run and play in the backyard all the time and he is nice enough to let me catch up with him.

Surprisingly my knees are okay, despite all the impact sports but right now I have a pulled muscle in my calf from chasing Toro. It sucks to get old!

Was a distance runner in high school and ran 1st team on cross country all three years. Can't remember most times but we would run groups of 440's to train for the distance runs and I would run a 55.5 440. Also remember one day the cross country coach (freshman year) had us run two miles on the track because of bad weather and it was a 10.33. Had a bad habit of ending up injured during spring track, broken bone in my foot and a pulled tendon another year. As a kid I loved running and now at 71 with arthritis in hips and knees I don't run anywhere.

4.6 40 consistently & occasionally 4.5 when I was 17 ... now days at 60 yrs. young a 40 is 6.4 which is still respectable.. but it hurts. Always ran out of gas on the 100.. quick twitch I am. I did hold the County/District School record for 60 yd. low hurdles for about 4 years till it was broken. Dad always said I could run fast and hurdle because of the years of herding cattle and jumping cow pies while doing it.

12 is fairly normal for most high school age young men with 11 being fairly quick, 10 is very rare and 9 is impossible! I must now question the yardage on all posted target yardage from this point forward. By the way I was a 12er. There was more meat on a Mc burger than on my legs back then.

About '68 I did the 50 in 5.8sec., had the Jr. High record for over a decade iirc. Last time I looked that has been well eclipsed. Dont remember anything about the 100 other than even then I was a better short distance sprinter and did well as a Fullback in football for a while until I got clipped on both knees by guys in practice. Yeah, practice...lets try it out on guys on our own team. Upperclassmen 1st string guys too so no 'penalties' ever called on them. Havent been a booster of HS football ever since.
Since then, with a badly/repeatedly folded over rt ankle, rt acl rebuild and two failing hips I was still doing 2mi. x 2-3 times a week at our 'club' in about 19min. at 3.2mph. I was feeling pretty good about the pace until getting passed by old, awkward slow looking people...... Imo you gotta be truckin to do 4! But that 3.2 was a pace that would give me the 2mi. and not aggravate my faulty parts, except my heart. I go in for what is likely to be quad bypass open heart next week or so.
Should get some more mileage, plannin on it anyway.

Best of luck to you on that, g. Keep us posted on your recovery progress.

Fastest

During a middle of the night rocket attack in 1967 I made some pretty fast moves but didn't look at the Seiko.

Never timed in the 100, in college ran a consistent 4.75 40, at the time respectable for a 6’1” 205lb defensive back. Now that’s too slow for a 6’5” 300 lb linemen.
