CHRISTOPHER’S STORY

Christopher has loved running since he can remember. He was on a soccer team at a young age, and at every practice and game he would hope his soccer team would be bad so their coach would order them to run laps! In high school, Christopher was cut from the freshman soccer team and was told by his XC Coach, (Coach Michalski) “Getting cut was the best thing that has ever happened to you!”
