Look how ridiculous fast these kids move. Their legs are just like pistons. I was watching this on Fox today just after their coverage of the Red Bull Air Race and it struck me how much more of an athlete you have to be to do something like speed doubledutch versus flying a plane super fast and through cones. Jump rope is the bomb.

I'd like to see somebody run a mile like that. Head perfectly still. Little feet hammering away at the ground. I think if I did something that intensely and quickly for that amount of time, I'd throw up.
