Sophie was the fastest runner at her school and beat everyone. It was her one sport that she was determined to be the best at. Her step mother left her and her father when she was young, but gave no reason as to why. Her father also always pushed her to win, and he was very cruel if she didn't win first place. Her father used to be a Olympic runner but he was injured, so he couldnt continue. This caused him to push her extremely, sometimes too hard. At one important state wide meet she won last place because the runners were incredibly fast, and her father disowned her. She ran away, and eventuallly came upon Camp Half Blood. She has had that meet and her fathers harsh words in her mind ever since.
