About This Quiz

Running is a great thing to do, whether you're doing it to compete in a sport, to get in shape or for fun. Pretty much the only time that running isn't the most fun thing to do in the world is if you're late for something or being chased. Some of us are natural runners, others have to train to be able to sprint, and others of us don't run at all unless we can totally avoid it. Still, even though a mile seems like a pretty long ways away to the uninitiated, most of us have run one before at least at some point in our life.

Let's imagine you were to run a mile right now. Are you the type of person who has been running competitively for a while now? If so, you probably already know how fast you can do a mile, and you know your best time in the past. Or maybe you're the kind of person who is totally in shape and could bust out a mile really fast, but you honestly have no idea how fast, because you're just running for the fun of it.  Or are you someone that doesn't run at all, but still wonders how fast you could? Take this quiz and find out. On your mark, get set, go!
