In a recent High School Cycling League race, Elijah struggled around a very technical course 5.5 miles long with 516 feet of elevation gain. Of the 140 riders competing in his classification, Elijah completed his lap dead last, 25 minutes 22 seconds behind the next slowest rider, but the crowds cheered as loudly for him as the had for the one that was first. After the race, Sally overheard a conversation between him and another rider. The other rider said, “Elijah, how did you do in the race”. Elijah replied, “I won”.
