  • BY SARAH ROHR
    In early April of my sophomore year, I was participating in my very first track meet as a Rochester Zebra. I had just finished my first event – the 4x800 meter relay – when a funny feeling settled in my lower right leg. I notified coach (Scott) Stalbaum, who advised me to drink some water and have a seat. Minutes later, that leg broke out in tremors. A year and a half later, they have yet to go away.
    The first occurrence of the shaking lasted only a few hours, the second a few more hours than the last, and the third did not stop until May. It was a constant thing, so much so that I adopted the new nickname “Twitch.”
