On my first deployment to Iraq I was in the base gym running on the treadmill. I was doing a good 8 mile an hour pace. This little brown dude gets on the treadmill besides me and starts off kind of slow and then started running like a maniac. I couldn't see what speed he was going at but when I finished about 20 minutes later he was still going. I asked the guy running the gym who that dude was and he told me it was a Gurkha hired as private security for someone in the green zone. I was amazed that a guy with that short of legs could run that fast for so long.
