In which high school class did Chris receive an “F”? Why?According to a high school teammate, how did McCandless’s cross-country regimens embody his way of living?

A clear example of Chris’s stubbornness is when he received an F for one subject because he refused to write an article in the particular way that the teacher had asked. Chris would train his cross-country team-mates at a grueling pace. He would often take them on practice runs in places where it was easy to get lost. He saw it as a challenge and saw running as a form of spiritual exercise. Of course this was typical of Chris and foreshadowed his eventual journey.
