No. I can run a mile in about 7:30 now, and about 6:50-7:00 back in high school, but my dad was in his college track team back in the Philippines and kept running regularly until he moved to America. There's no way I could handle something like that if I went up against my dad from when he was still running.

On average, children today run a mile 90 seconds slower than did their counterparts 30 years ago, they said.[/quote] Tap kek. Do you think you could run faster than your mom/dad could when they were your age? [spoiler]I know I could, my dad was quite short until he was 20, then a he grew over a foot and a half lol.
