Meanwhile, Taylor Huffman, sitting nearby on the couch hears David leaving. He jumps up, slips on his shoes, straps his watch on his right hand, and races out the door behind David. This is the process the Huffmans generally follow when they go for a run. The fear of falling behind is enough to get them out the door. Identical twins David and Taylor Huffman thrive on competing with one another. Ever since the first race they ran together in high school, the two have been rivals.
