Speed !!

When did you feel it? When did you know you acheived it?

Me? I was at a driving(cage)course and finally got a perfect run through an "S" corner. At the end of the Apex of the last corner I snuck a peek at my speed. 45 MPH. If I was perfect I would see 45 MPH at the exact same point every time. I would set up a car right before the S and make a perfect corner and be on the straight before they blinked. That was speed for me. Any Ape can go fast straight-It's the corners that matter.
You?

I haven't achieved it yet, for me it's when you become bait for the big fish.
