January 1 2017, Happy New Year, but little did I know my life was about to change forever. I had been coaching cross country since 2008 and teaching since 2007 at a local high school. I still teach there, but one incident would rock my world and change me as a person forever.
The Flaws of Society
Justifying the means. Is not what it seems. In a world that we see, watching the world as it bleeds. People see each other through lenses. The ones that all cleanses. Every flaw, every blemish. They all seem to diminish.

A Trail To Victory
I ended 2016 in despair. I was sick most of the year and put on a lot of weight because I suddenly was not active anymore. When 2017 started, I had a plan. I would lose the weight by working out hard and running, like I used to do. 2017 would be very different than the past years, because I was no longer coaching cross country and had time on my hands. How would I fill the time, I wondered? I decided that I would sign up for my first Spartan Race. It was in June at a venue in Tuxedo, New York, a Sprint. I had been running and lifting consistently by that time and thought I was ready. My training up to that point included running 4 to 6 miles per day and lifting 3 to 4 times per week. I had already completed a few 5Ks for the year as well as my first obstacle course race, a Warrior Dash. I figured, how hard could it be? Well I was dead wrong about what I was about to encounter. It was amazing. I felt defeated by the end of it, but that is not what this story is all about. I did complete my first Spartan Race and with that completion I was challenged. I needed to not only do better in my next race, but I would take on an entire trifecta in my first season. I was hooked. I even have a tattoo to prove it, which took 3 stages to complete. My tattoo artist filled in each color after I completed each level of racing.

The Dreamer: Chapter 7
Marcus scanned the room for his friends at their usual table. The cafeteria is one of those that have long tables lined up in rows. There are five rows of two tables each. At each table there are twenty round stools attached to it so you can not move them. Marcus, Jonathan, and Jeff always ate lunch together. After the day he was having, Marcus just wanted to relax with his buddies. Marcus walked over to the table and smiled genuinely to see that Jeff and Jonathan were waiting for him. As he sat down he thought to himself, ‘Life will be so much different if I can not stop the accident.’
