If running 100 meter is too easy for you, how about running with a parachute behind you?
Yeah, you probably have seen NASA shuttle lands from sky with a big parachute. Now, to create the similar drag, Nike has released SPARQ Parachute for athletes. Runner needs to strap the belt around his waist. As you run, the parachute catches air and it adds resistance while you move. The faster you run, the higher the drag force. The maximum drag is said to be about 15 lbs of force. You will end up running harder with more power. It is a matter of time you will be a better sprinter on the track.
I am not sure how much is it to get this from Nike, but if you are serious to get one of these, you can get it from other manufacturers at about $25 from Amazon:
Don’t run with this parachute in the park. You may caught in a tree branch.
