Turned my 8th grade presidential fitness mile into a race with two soccer players who bet me that I couldn't break 6:00 off of just playing around with mountain bikes, wound up just barely getting under and kind of liking it,
went out for track in H.S. to pad my resume and meet people, wound up being mediocre.
Went out for college xc/track to pad my resume, meet people and try to have the college athlete experience, I was horrible and got a good lesson in how to be hurt and get your ass kicked all the time.
Now I just run because i still sort of can and I've made fun of fatties all my life among my friends so I cannot allow myself to be fat.
