Who are we?

Who are we? Tagged with:

 

The lifestyle of an athlete is one that is chosen, for it takes a certain amount of guile and discipline to be able to function in the athletic world. At the University of Illinois, those that were on the wheelchair basketball team had a very tedious schedule. While most people are still sleeping at 5:00 AM, we were up and preparing for our 6:30 AM practices. As “normal” people were dreaming, we were out on the court trying to make our dreams a reality. Before we could even get on the court, we had to make sure our chairs were ready. Chair maintenance is a tedious but necessary part of being a wheelchair basketball player, if the slightest thing is off about our chairs it can mean the difference between a win or a loss.

While walking to the Fitness Center for one of my sessions, I passed a pickup truck.  The driver is getting ready to pull out of the parking lot.  The truck smoothly shifted into 1st, 2nd, and then 3rd gear, and proceeds to drive out.
