Summer runs, anticipation of fall races, sites to see and people yet to meet. Fear of coach and fear of failure, both pretty good motivators, for a back marker like me. To come together and push one another and learn along the way, that as I suffer through victories and losses, the pain of racing is washed away with memories and the knowledge that I have just gone farther and faster than I ever have before. To see the success of today's program humbles me to think I was once part of its beginnings, so long ago. Forgive me Dr. Satterfield and Prof. Kloefkorn for being a better runner than writer/poet.
