The toes of my shoes dragged hard against the gravel pavement as it streaked under me. I held my body stiff. My legs stretched out slightly behind me, my arms stretched tightly to the motorcycle’s license plate frame in front of me. The rear tire, sprocket, and chain spun dangerously below my chest.Continue reading “The Forever Mile”
