When Marcus Aaron Luke runs fast, everything feels slow.
“You feel every small step,” he says. “You feel every small detail.”
But in the pandemic year of 2020, he’s missed a lot of important details of his last year of high school.
Luke was a leader on his varsity track team, and also as a senior at Pendleton High School in northeastern Oregon. He missed his much-anticipated senior track season. Now bigger and stronger, he was ready to push his times down even more.
He’s missed more than two months of classes.
