There was a U.S. poet who didn't know any Chinese, but used the literal translation of some poems, and ...

Not quite; I break this fragment like this: 多是 不跑步的 替...操心 跑步的 The word "多是" is a bit tricky too, as in this case it's an abbreviation of "大多是", or "mostly is". So altogether, it should be: , mostly is those who don't run worrying on behalf of those who run. Of course, this direct translation is awkward, so it might be better to rephrase it ...

我即将去军校 is grammatically correct, but 即将 sounds too formal. Try this: 我很快就要去军校了。 I soon will go-to military-school le. Notice that I used 了 which marks the end of what I am saying.
