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 applied to her neurology. 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 to break the World record?
