[T3] East to West; West to East

I think you would win the 100m Olympic Gold medal if you could run at 1000
mph, but not the Indianapolis 500 as you would be going East and West
equally.  ;-)

Concorde used to fly faster than 1,000 mph, so it got into New York a couple
of hours before it left London!

It's all to do with the way the Earth rotates.  Things in the West are
already moving East at 1,000 mph.  Obviously it takes less energy to move
then East than West.  ;-)

So does that mean if I could run at 1,000 mph, essentially my car would be
standing still as the earth rotates underneath me?  [?]  :-)
