This article from today’s New York Times discusses Ultimate Frisbee and how it’s taking off as a sport. That’s GREAT because the hero of Liberating Lacey, Hunter, plays UF and there’s a nice little scene of him playing in a match for charity. I especially liked this quote from Susan Batchelder:
“I love to run with purpose, meaning I hate the track, but I like to chase things,” Ms. Batchelder said. “I love the fact that when you’re playing, you make hundreds and thousands of little decisions — where the disc is, where your body is — but they happen without thinking.”
That pretty well sums up Hunter, the hero: running with a purpose (chasing criminals) and very, very present in his body.
