"I don't know why God gave me this thing. I wasn't big, I wasn't strong. But he gave me this one thing that you need to be successful...at anything.
I had a Passion."
A humble Wayne Gretzky at his induction to the Hockey Hall of Fame.
"Though no one can go back and make a brand new start, anyone can start from now and make a brand new ending."

Once in awhile, someone puts the work in and performs at a certain level. Something clicks and that person moves beyond and scares the rest of us a little.
Jessie Kindschi made a ripple in the water in High School in Bismarck. She made a splash last Spring in Division 2 indoors for SDSU, running a 5000 indoors in 16:45 (All-American indoors).
This Fall, she transferred to Brigham Young (Division 1) and basically emptied the pool of any water of all (cannonball) with a seventh place finish in D1 cross country. Oh yeah, her team won the title, too. Where to go from here?
Jessie, keep up the good work!
