    First baseline mile run: 8:40. Since I'm 53 and not a runner I was pretty happy with that.
    This is going to be FUN!

    A 2011 study in middle aged men found that a single mile run test was a fair predictor of future CHD mortality. Men in their 50s who could run a mile in 8 minutes had optimal cardiovascular health and a 10% lifetime risk of heart disease; 10 minute milers had a 30% risk.

    And men who dropped dead after the single mile test, well they had 100% risk of death.

    Why exactly is running a mile such a good thing? I'd rather walk, much less chance of injury.
