Does my coach really think that since my injury I can't keep up with a faster runner? I'm so angry,I've worked so hard and now I have to keep pace with a freshman!? Well Ill show everyone my partner and I are going to be the first ones to break through that finish line. Its almost my turn I hop up and down to get my adrenaline pumping,Sarah does the same. the whistle blows and we're off. Sarah struggles to keep pace with my long legs so I slow down a bit. I can feel a dull ache in my knee but pish through it. Sarah and I pass two doubles from the other team, our pace is good but I want to go faster. We run past the three mile mark, half way there. This trail is gorgous, it snakes along side a river. I can't hear the pitter patter of feet anymore and we haven't passed anyone else in awhile.
