Illustrated by Jimmy Cobb

A personal message from the author:

“track is a Lonely sport,” is the product of a discomfort with myself and who I was becoming. Writing it has been a sort of therapy, helping me understand my place with others in the world. At some times, it is brash and cynical; at others, it is lofty and hopeful.

I've found reality to be somewhere between these two extremes–I hope that you can, too.

— Noah Jacobs
