I'm sorry but I just watched about 5 minutes of power walking in the Olympics and actually got sick to my stomach. I just don't get it...

Next it'll be POWER nosepicking, POWER ass-scratching, POWER teethbrushing (disregarding electric toothbrushes).

if you're riding in a car (not driving) and you look out the side, and swing your arms it feels like you're walking really fast
