He takes another chance on his running career, and begins training: “But without extending himself, he began clocking miles in 4:18, just two seconds slower than the winning time of the Zamperini Invitational that he’d seen in March. He was coming all the way back.” (359) Here you can see that even after war, Louie slowly starts to become himself again. However, it’s not easy as a war veteran to return to normal life. Louie found his past haunting him in his dreams like a ghost.

“Bang!” The gun fires off, and the race starts at that instant. As I spring from my starting position I look in the corner of my eye, to see another runner leading the pack. I concentrated all of my energy into the race, my legs burning from the intensity, however, it was not enough for me to clench the sweet taste of victory. I turned up at the finish line with 2nd place.
In the middle of the run there was a fork in the snow, it either lead to a black diamond run or a blue run. My dad asked me and my brother if we we’re up to go on the black diamond run, and I replied “No way”, but we went down it anyway, I went even faster than I was before, it gave me a huge adrenaline rush, and every time I fell, I got back right up like it was nothing. It was an amazing experience going down this massive hill, I’m really glad I spent time with my family

We were midway through a tough season as we trotted onto Maquoketa’s field. Injury and mental mistakes had dropped us to a disappointing 0-3. We were hungry for a win, and we were playing our rivals. Music blared as we put our pads on, and the feeling in my gut before the game is indescribable. Our fullback was back after suffering a knee injury in our first game, and our wide receiver was back after being sick for the past week.
“Touchdown Lafayette!” This was the start to my high school career and we were losing in the first half of the game. It took them forever to score so I believed that the defense could go hard and stop them just once. We knew if we lost it would be some smack going on social media so someone had to step up.
As the race starts, Squeaky looks over to her brother who was running on the sidelines. He was running in a unique style with his palms tucked behind his back and Squeaky sees that Raymond has the potential to be a good runner. “And I’m smiling to beat the band ‘cause if I’ve lost this race, or if me and Gretchen tied, or even if I’ve won, I can always retire as a runner and begin a whole new career as a coach with Raymond as my champion” (Bambara 40). This shows that for the first time Squeaky shifts away from her own goals and focuses on those of Raymond’s. She realizes that Raymond could be a challenger and Squeaky vows to help him in his personal race.
The second I was on the field I knew my team had the game won. All I could see around me was a group of men ready for war. I couldn’t be more ready for my last home opener so after I did what I do when the unexplainable happens, accept it. I ran to the 45 to the 35 to the 20, hoping to find the kick returner. 8 months waiting for this moment all the sweat, pain, 100 degree sun beaming UV rays to my face.
Then, against Highland Park, we were going to stop David Sachs and Luke Norcia and make the rest of their team beat us. They did not. Then, with all the confidence in the world going into our first conference home game, we played Niles North, and they took it to us. Unlike New Trier, Niles North was fast and wanted to run up and down, so we wanted to slow it down because they could not guard us in our half court offense. We were going to run Platteville as our primary offense.
