Eric Cray, Southeast Asia's fastest man, preaches the value of slowing things down

By the time Eric Cray arrives in Malaysia on Friday for the Southeast Asian Games , he will have circled the globe with the number of miles he has covered in the past few weeks.

He flew from the US to India for the Asian track and field championships last month, then headed back to the United States after the competition -- a return trip that took 40 hours, compounded by excruciatingly long layovers.

"Massage is like any professional athlete's best friend," Cray told ABS-CBN News in a phone conversation.
