About 20 minutes…

I usually stop for a Twinkie or two.

Depends on what’s chasing me. Or what’s at the finish line.

In prime (freshman gym class), I was clocked at a respectable 6:45. I thought I had just missed the world record but I found out otherwise.

As fast as my car can get me there ;)

Usually in about a day. Sometimes a little longer.

(on the treadmill, I usually set it at 5.6 mph, unless I’m running sprints. So I. Am. Slow.)

MacBean's avatar

I can’t.

running? maybe if my life is in danger, but otherwise, I’d walk…

loser's avatar

A day and a half, give or take…

wrestlemaniac's avatar

depends what’s chasing me, what’s at the finish or if it’s dark and cloudy or sunny, usually 4 minutes if i run at unholy speed.

trumi's avatar

You can run a mile in 4 minutes?

wrestlemaniac's avatar

if it’s not sunny or if i run at unholy speed, or both.

lefteh's avatar

The world record is 3:43.
4 minutes was the world record until the mid-50s.

I have donned my skeptical face.

wrestlemaniac's avatar

donned? my mortal enemy returns a word i don’t know.

La_chica_gomela's avatar

it means ‘put on’
oh wait, was that a joke?

flameboi's avatar

yes it was lol

wrestlemaniac's avatar

well hey my friends don’t call me Nosferatu for nothing, i mean my canines are natural like an inch long.

ninjaxmarc's avatar

as fast as my two big feet can get me there.

aaronou's avatar

4:32 back in my high school track days…These days, probably double that.

wrestlemaniac's avatar

and how fast do you think that is ninjaxmarc?

ninjaxmarc's avatar


Depends if I stop to fluther.

wrestlemaniac's avatar

that’s reasonable enough.

(late to the party)

I initially read Eambos’ quip as “5 minutes, 49 seconds, and 3 days.”

Thought it was funny. What the hell, giving it a GA just b/c it was funny for me.

Dyslexics of the world untie!
