Ebook By Deena Kastor 솥 Running seemed fail proof There were no tryouts, no one was cut, everyone participated and got a ribbon Most kids started with the sprints, but my mom ruled them out because a few girls in the valley were already racing at a national level, including future Olympian Marion Jones Ever protective, my mom thought if I got clobbered in the sprints, my self esteem would plummet, so she had me join the distance running group My dad drove us all to the track on the first day I was braiding Lesleys hair when we pulled in to the school and the chaotic scene caught our attention Kids were jumping into sandboxes, arching over bars, falling into big blue mattresses Coaches were shouting and pointing and clapping My mom, with a plush stadium cushion in one hand and my sisters hand in the other, made a beeline toward the bleachers I followed my dad, who had offered again to be a volunteer coach We scanned the field to find the distance team and were eventually directed to a group of about eight boys and girls huddled around head coach Sal Pratts Coach Pratts was a big personality stuffed into a short, strong frame Todays warm up is a half mile on the track, then five minutes on the trail, he said Wary of doing something wrong, I asked, How many laps is a half mile Two, he said My dad held up two fingers Wheres the trail Coach Pratts started to give me directions, but then said, Just follow Noelle, if you can keep her in your sights Noelle was tall and leggy, with short, curly brown hair and big white teeth highlighting a friendly smile We hit the track Noelle had been running for a few years and her experience showed, but I found I could keep up with her This was a relief I just had to watch her to know what to do Our half mile complete, I followed Noelle out the gate The school abutted the foothills of the Santa Monica Mountains, and we followed a dusty trail a short way into the hills I looked up and was taken aback The land was open and wild There were fields of dry grasses and chaparral broken only by large arching oak trees Rattlesnakes hidden in yellow flowering brush shook their tails, and horses grazed in the fenced off meadows Id seen the mountains on the drive to the mall and thought they were pretty, but never knew you could go into them When it was time to turn around, I didnt want to I loved running right from the start It was simple and fun It lacked rules and structure There was no equipment to fuss with, no technique to learn While the kids on the infield waited for their turn to jump or throw, Noelle and I and the other kids ran single file on the dusty cinder track I remember thinking how lucky we runners were to be in constant motion We were part of the action all the time Running was also, to my surprise and delight, both solitary and social One minute I was dashing down the track as if by myself on the side of the hill The next, I was whipping around and making funny faces, trying to make my teammates laugh Best of all, running didnt make me feel foolish or ridiculous, like Id done something wrong The ease of it made me feel competent and free Everything we were asked to do, I could do I ran and counted my laps I warmed up on the trails, happily shooting out the gate with my teammates to the wild open space, and ran among the rabbits and deer Sometimes, Coach Pratts let us run through the neighborhood We stretched across the whole street, a pack of scrawny kids exploring manicured suburbia, unfettered, adventurous, going where none of the other kids got to go A candid account about the
