Zebra Back in the Race
It has been a year since Adam Martin "Zebra" Zebrin stopped running after being hit by a car one day while he was running. Once the doctor gave him permission to let him run again he started training to run marathons and he also joined his school's track team. Then he found out about the New York City Marathon in New York City, New York. He trained for six months, three hours a day, six days a week. He ended up getting 112th place in the marathon. Zebra said "It was cold outside but it was the greatest time in my life. I loved the way the wind felt against my face as I ran. It was a lot of work but in the end it was worth it". He plans on running in the marathon again next year.

I'm having a hard time asking a girl out. I'm in seventh grade and every time I try to ask her out, I end up embarrassing myself. What should I do?

Dear A Guy in Love,
Here's what you should do; you should write her a letter that tells her the way you feel about her. Then you should stick it in her locker. I did this when I was your age and it worked.
