A Taste of Success is All it Takes

Through my first several sixth grade cross country meets, I placed 7th or 8th. Then one day, I was 5th. Before you know it, I was second. The next year, I won every meet I ran.

My point is that it didn't take much. It took a taste of success, and I was hooked. I knew I could do it, and I did. Plus, it's a good chance to get a vintage BV picture online.

FYI, in case you wondered, #6 (David C) became captain of the varsity swim team and soccer team, #4 (Marc M) became a varsity basketball starter on the top ranked team in the state, #2 (me) became soccer captain, and #1 (Mark D) became captain and lead scorer of his varsity basketball team.

And even though I've seen you all of one time in person, I picked you out immediately!

I hope David C. isn't too horrified, if he reads your blog, to see that particular HANDSOME picture of himself. (Or maybe I do hope he is, heh heh.) Poor studly seventh grader...
