Jess has gotten up early every single morning all summer long. This is definitely not normal behavior for a soon-to-be-fifth grade. Jess is getting up early to train to be the fastest runner in the fifth grade. He longs to impress his friends, families, and teachers and wants to feel accepted and fit into a "mold" of some sort. So, he hopes that running will allow him to fit into the mold. He is also aware, on some level, that everyone (even people who aren't athletic) will be impressed by his ability to run quickly.
