Have you ever found yourself longing to escape reality? Have you ever fallen into a state of daydream during that one mind-numbing history class? I have. I remember imagining that I was back in the Philippines, sitting there on the beach. The chatter of other kids running around in the sand mixed with the crashing of the waves against the shoreline was so relaxing to me.
Are we not all tired of running? Of keeping up with the fast pace of this unkind thing called life? Of battling with our personal demons? Of dwelling in a place where fear and anguish take on different forms. I do not want to make this speech sound like an infernal tale to you
I would always serve above my head which was not ideal. Therefore, I missed almost all the serves. As the unit progressed I started to get the hang of the sport. It was not about strength it was solely based on technique. I realized that the more you made the other teamplayer run the faster they got tired and got less energy to hit the ball.
The main character of the story is the hunger artist. He is a professional faster that thrives off attention of the people. He wants nothing more to prove to the spectators that he is the greatest faster of all time.

These are beacons we have to look back to in our lives to encourage us to keep going to remind us that things will not be as bad as we imagine. I have read that the thing that most terminally ill people tend to regret is not living a life true to oneself, but the life others expected of them.

Slow down, why are you going so fast? Who are you living for? Everyone is always going so fast all the time, but if you were to stop and ask why they would not have an answer. Part of the reason they do not know why they are going so fast is that they are not living for themselves. No one lives for themselves, everyone is living for the approval of others.
Ralph Waldo Emerson's statement about growth forgets the fact that most things cannot be mastered. Things like knowledge and athletic achievement can always be improved upon. No matter how good you are in your field, there is always room for improvement. Sports like swimming always have something you can improve on. If there is one thing swimming has taught me, it would be that there is always someone who is faster than you.
Nothing is ever given to you in life and if you want to achieve your goals, you must challenge yourself past your limits. While running is an individual sport, the team is so important to becoming a better athlete and person. The team challenges you to be your best and has become the biggest competitor for me. My teammates inspire me to work harder and push me to run faster in every meet and practice. This type of competition is positive because I want my teammates to succeed and they want to see me accomplish my goals.
I magically picked up my sports shoes again, finally decided to continue my run. And when I finally went back to my team with Coach Chavez, I 'm even more determined that it 's indeed an unexpected luck for me to meet such an inspiring coach who led me to the eventual realization about myself, how I was encircled and almost suffocated by my narrow ego which I looked upon as wisdom. With her, I recognized that in the running towards one 's pursuit, only with the commitment and efforts to one 's utmost, victory could be achieved. And now, as I look up to those athletes, not only that I no longer detest their opinions, I too, join their camps, looking forward to run once again to my heart 's content, with the beginning
The countdown to the race was a whole different experience in itself. Time slowed down, your senses were fine tuned, and nothing could distract you. This happens very race, every start. It is a crazy sensation that is awesome but terrifying at the same exact time.
I want to be the best runner I can possibly be and I am willing to work hard and push past barriers in order to accomplish this goal. Whenever I am struggling with a workout I think of my goals to motivate myself to continue to work hard. I am a very goal oriented person with everything
On the track team we share similar goals in the track and field community. There are a lot of goals too set when you’re on the track team. I and my team all have personal records that we set after a race and when it’s time for the next race we set a goal to beat the last record. We also have the same goal of reaching the state and city championships. Only the best makes it too the championships and it’s our goal to get
