    I remember this, I was 12.

    Bannister's legend was born on May 6, 1954, when he took to the Iffley Road cinder track at Oxford despite unfavorable weather conditions and became the first man to run a mile in under four minutes—a feat many deemed impossible and possibly deadly, much like climbing Mt. Everest.
    It's not how old you are, it's how you got here.
    It's been a long road and not all of it was paved.

    There was a story about him in the 1960s-era Childcraft Books. We had the full set and I was addicted to reading them as a kid.
