RUNNING IN A FASTER TIMEFRAME.
When Maxi Fleet, a marathon runner, meets Jack Cram, a physicist researching flow, their careers blossom and they become partners. Their story is told in a novel Time Is Gold by Martin Knox. Maxi trains using flow, or ‘in the zone’ and her performance improves to the elite level. Her goal is to run faster than any woman has run before.
Jack has an idea that if she trains to run in ‘extreme flow’ she can dilate her time, being able to run further in the same time, according to Einstein’s Special Relativity theory. Her training is planned at meetings of her team of friends, in a think tank, with Jack as her philosophical coach. Her coaching needs develop from accepting her father’s authoritarianism to Jack’s role as her technical adviser. He is too much in love to be able to tell her what to do. The philosophies and scientific theories of her running are carefully described and explained in non-scientific language. Her progress is fresh and inspiring.
Will Maxi achieve her goal and break the World record?

COULD YOU WIN AT YOUR OLYMPICS?
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.
Reviewed by Romuald Dzemo for Readers’ Favourite.
‘. . .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. . .’

RUN FURTHER IN LESS TIME, WITHOUT SPEEDING UP.
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.
