Run, Run Cheetah...

A cheetah's feet don't touch the ground for more than half of the time it's running.

A cheetah can complete up to three strides per second, with only one foot on the ground at any time and several stages when feet don't touch the ground at all. Hard, ridged foot pads and blunt, nonretractable claws maximize traction with the ground.
