Favorite Quote:
If a girl looks swell when she meets you, who gives a damn if she's late? Nobody. ~J.D. Salinger, The Catcher in the Ry

The beating of soles
Running on hot asphalt
Pumping arms push him faster
He gathers burning speed

Colors blur and mix
Finish line seared into vision
Pushing past the others
Just to get to the finish

Yards away from reaching
Blocking out spectators screaming
Over one foot, the other seconds later
Single white line signifies races ending
