Many people endure competition in athletics, sport, music, dance, debating and other performance. The key to success is training.
Time is Gold, a novel by Martin Knox, tells a story how a schoolgirl Maxi Fleet trains to break the World marathon record coached by a team of technical specialists and her boyfriend physicist Jack Cram. It takes them years of effort, but with a new technique she is confident of winning.

‘. . .This is a wonderful story with elaborately developed themes, including love, ambition, hard work and pain, drive for success, performance and friendship. Set in the future, it has strong psychological and scientific underpinnings. . .’

Einstein’s theory of special relativity in space travel was that movement in a faster time frame would dilate time. By analogy, stimulus response signals in a human nervous system would be in dilated or stretched time, enabling a runner to go further in less time without speeding up. By running in their own internal time, independently of the external time of timepieces, a runner ‘in flow’ can run timelessly, improve and win.
My speculative fiction novel Time Is Gold will be published later this year.
