    I'm not trying to be mean or anything but it really isn't that great of a time. I know that it could definitly be dropped by quite a few seconds if you started running regularly. How often do you run or workout?

    no offence but its pretty shithouse, even for an overweight out of shape person.

    Seriously, that comes out to almost an eleven minute mile. When I was in high school I ran a lackluster 7:28 mile in baseball conditioning and that was FAR behind everyone else. Back then I was around 30-35 pounds overweight at 220lbs. 1/4 mile is 400m. Perhaps you have your distances wrong? Either that or you are slacking off alot...

    wow... quarter mile times (one 400 meter lap) are normally around a minute (like other people are alluding too).

    That sounds like a slowish 800m time 1/2mile. Even if you hopped the 1/4 mile I don't reckon you could do it slower than that. I've run 400m in 57 secs before. Michael Johnson did it in 43.18!!!!! But even then I don't think he is three times faster than you.

    Yeah, I remember back in like Freshman PE for highschool, we had to do the timed runs and one of them was a quarter mile time. I was terribly out of shape and ran mine in around 1:40 or so. Now I get it at about 1:10 or so I'm guessing: I'll give it a try a bit later this week.

    That's too slow for a quarter mile...that'd be decent half mile time.
