No. 2, Revisited [Runners]

“During the summer between my freshman and sophomore years in college, I worked as a camp counselor for third-fifth graders. I got up every morning at 5:30 to get my daily 10 [miles] in, but I would also use camp games as additional mileage. I convinced several kids throughout the summer that I was an Olympic 5K runner about to leave for London—this was in 2012. I would usually outrun them, but occasionally I was caught, and when that happened, I never heard the end of it. They thought it was the coolest thing in the world to catch an ‘Olympian.’ It worked out for my benefit, too, because I got some wicked speed training that year from outrunning little kids!”
