Her matted down velvet black hair tied back into a tight,slick bun to show the rays of intensity raging off her.

My legs got wobbly as everything began to spin and the next thing I knew I was falling to the ground. Starting cross-country my senior year was terrifying, but I am so grateful I did because this moment during my first race taught me a lot about my strength and persistence when I am tested with any type of challenge.
