Abstract: On one of these occasions I was running with a 12-13 year-old, Mennonite boy named Harley. As we ran along I entertained discussion about a number of topics. Noticing the pace I was setting was not very difficult for Harley, I decided to pick up speed. Again, no visible signs of strain and Harley kept on talking. I increased the pace to a level I now was finding intense. I had stopped talking half a kilometre ago. Harley was striding along beside me effortlessly. When we finished the course and I caught my breath I asked him if he would agree to come to the cross-country meet in mid October. He indicated he had chores after school each night and so could not attend practices unless they were at school. I found ways for him to practise. He won the cross-country meet. This story shows that how you enjoy the game is more important than how you play the game strategically, and listening to stuents with eyes and ears will help teachers fin the important possibilities in the students' lives.
