Danielle's mind wandered. Sometimes she thought of school or her family. Other times it was about her friends or hobbies. But she often daydreamed about why she ran. She was a good runner. She had won several track meets. Winning meets, however, was not why she ran. She rarely daydreamed about winning. Never once did she fantasize about winning a gold medal. She ran to clear her mind from competition. Running was something she did all by herself. She did not have to worry about what others were doing. Running was all about her. She loved that about running. She would keep doing it as long as her legs would let her.
