I introduced myself and asked if it were still possible to join the cross country team. Unlike today, where legally high school athletes are required to have a specific number of practices under their belt before they are allowed to compete, I was allowed to join the team immediately. After filling out a few forms, I thanked him for the opportunity. But, as I was leaving the room, he said “Just so you know, today is the team’s first race of the season and I’m going to let you run.

He could do nothing about the aching pain of how his dad died…in a self imposed sleep from too much of the sleeping salts, and a fallen candle that set off the fire. What was done was done, and he had learned early on to not hang on to things you had no control of, so he rode away from his childhood and toward the life of a
