Winning Nationals wasn’t the only dream that came true. I also walked away with the heart of the one boy without whom I couldn’t live. I knew being Jace Wilder’s girlfriend wouldn’t be simple. But how could I have known all the hurdles we would face?
Drama at school? That’s a given. Jealous girls? That I expected. Family secrets? Not so much. At least I can always hit the trails to clear my head...or so I thought.
The high expectations from my winning cross country season still haunt me and hold me hostage. I can’t seem to get psyched up for what comes next. My competitive spirit is fading, and I’m lost without it. What will I do when my one constant is no longer my safe place?
Life on and off the track is spiraling out of control, leaving me in its wake as I struggle to remember who I truly am.
