Patrick Miller is a typical kid from a working Midwestern town. This is his coming-of-age story in which there may or may not be a happy ending.
I am writing this brief article for a writing class that I am taking through a community college in my home town of Pontiac, Illinois. This is somewhat of a brief insight to the love and (passion) for the sport I have, but unfortunately this is all the time I have to complete this assignment on time.
I currently work forty plus hours a week for my father cleaning carpets at his professional floor care business and have been doing so for the past three years. Honestly, my life is a little overwhelming at times, being a 23 year old young man, owning a car, renting a house, raising a dog, and most importantly making it all worth my while, while continuing my education so I do not have to keep cleaning carpets for the rest of my life and do something that I love and have a true passion for.
CrossFit, fires me up inside, and pushes me like nothing else has ever done, and it is truly my passion and something that I want to have part in for the rest of my life. —Patrick Miller, October 2012
