Hiking Through Echo Mountain

When I was in high school I played basketball and tried to play football. Emphasis on the tried. I was very fast and athletic but the ball always slipped through my hands, even with gloves. For both of the sports I participated in, I do not remember a practice where we spent the entire session playing a full game. All of the practice sessions involved getting our bodies and minds ready by stretching and receiving a talk from the coaches where they laid out a plan of action for the next game…
