Danny was the best runner in the world

Since Dannys youth had been groomed to be the best runner in the nation. He was faster and stronger then any other runner out there. He received multiple awards and his name was already famous at a very young age. In elementary school he would get up early and run 10 miles before school even began. This was the same for high school and college. He won just about every award that he possible could.

What was not to readily ever discussed though was that while he was an amazing runner he began using some steroids to run better in his early years of college. It was nothing big but just enough to give him even greater boosts. The records he set were amazing, but he wanted more and started pushing for even more sport enhancing liquids to push him higher and higher. He was running miles faster then most could even believe.

Then  one day in the last month of college he was running for his daily job when he collapsed on the ground grasping his chest. He had a minor heart attack and was advised by the doctors there to stop using sport enhancing drugs. However Danny didn’t listen to this, instead he got himself a prescription from a doctor for various over the counter drugs and pain medication. This is likely the reason why he made it to the Olympics and got gold.

During those Olympics he fell and badly damaged both his legs, he refused to stand down and instead took high doses of morphine, oxycodine and adrenaline to keep on running. After the Olympics he fell into a deep depression because the injuries that he had sustained  left him unable to run. Months went by and Danny was even more upset about what had happened and was looking for some way to become healed. He started drinking to ease his mind and slowly started feeling better. He started training again and it was during this time he met a man who offered to give him something that would push him further.

Danny never asked questions but started taking it and he was able to run faster then he had ever before. He kept on training and went on to win another Olympic games however he received silver. Like before, he went into a deep depression after winning the Olympic games. He started drinking even more heavy then before and in order to get himself training again he had to use multiple medicines, drinks and steroids. Danny went on to win the bronze at next Olympics however the years of drinking, medicines, steroids, crazy routines had left him permanently hurt and Danny was never able to fully get up again.

Danny spent the rest of his life barely able to walk and only recollecting the greatness that he had achieved.

  1. Turning a thing of beauty (fitness) and privilege (talent and opportunity) to dust and decay. Do I do this too on some level in areas of my life? Nationally does America look like it does this? Yes.
