An Essay from the course that cannot be defeated

Every course constructed is imbued with a purpose by its creator. My purpose is to elevate my riders. To take them where they want to go.

I achieve my purpose by being relentless and unwavering, and I am good at what I do.

I am untiring. I do not succumb. I am never-ending and never defeated, for I am always ready for another lap.

As I was in the past, I am now and ever shall be; I am a route without end.
