Long bus rides are a part of every athlete’s life, and I doubt many expect to miss them later on, but here’s the truth: you will miss them.
You’ll miss curling up under blankets with your school’s logo, or sitting sprawled across bench seats with your teammates. You’ll miss sharing headphones, or singing along with the radio (and driving your coach crazy). You’ll miss the conversations about everything and nothing. You’ll miss the jubilant rides home, and the quiet ones, too.
And you’ll discover something those bus rides made you: a traveler, a philosopher, a poet, a musician, a cheerleader, or something else entirely. So you’ll be grateful for them, too.
