Even though I was quite short and still am now, I was still always faster than some other competitors that I ran against all my events. It had gotten to the point that every track meet I competed in, I would push off the blocks after hearing a big “POP!” from the gun, and race to the finish with always a new personal record. Then, by the time track was getting close to the end, I was put in the four by four relay event which consists of one lap around the track with some of the top runners on my track team. I never had really liked or favored the four by four relay event because it involved some long distance. Since it was almost the end of the season for track, my four by four relay team and I didn 't have much practice as we wanted to, to be completely prepared for the last couple of meets before sectionals.
After 2 hours of driving, we arrived to the hospital, the doctors told us that she has suffered from severe dehydration and as a results her kidney failed and she might need to be on a dialysis machine.

As for the relay race we came first with a couple of seconds to spare. In grade eight I joined a track and field, outside of school called Ottawa Lions, and it was great while it lasted but I quit the club because it was too expensive my parents told me. So after middle school I came to Glebe collegiate institute. It was very scary at first, but then I joined the football team as a freshman and I met a lot of new people. I was one of the few freshmans that got to play in a varsity football team, and since I was under 100 pounds and the shortest guy on the team, II was very proud for myself.
It was one scorching hot afternoon,at a large football field.Little 10-year old unfit Michael(Me) was running to the ball.He was huffing and puffing, he just a hair’s breadth away from reaching it!But alas,the fitness expert,the superior sportsman had triumphed over little Michael again,The extreme sportsman had managed to kick the ball to the goal!As if second nature to the 10-year old class,they started creating a cacophony of sounds almost impossible,if not impossible,to decipher.Mostly cheers though.But all little Michael could hear were the soft murmurs of disappointment and the sad smiles people throw him.It was absolutely depressing to a ten year old,to get looked down on his peers,all because he liked being indoors more,or maybe the
Grant heard no more about Mr. Smith until April 1896, when the poorly paid law clerk engaged two of the best young lawyers in Colorado to file a $10,000 civil action against Dr. Grant, claiming limb shortening and disability as a result of his failure to diagnose a femoral fracture” (Barnard Health Care.

When death occurs everyone is heartbroken and they try to give their condolences to the affected family. In The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian Arnold states, “When it comes to death we know that laughter and tears are pretty much the same. We said goodbye to my grandmother… Each funeral was a funeral for all of us. We lived and died together”. (pg.166) Tears and laughter are strong emotions when something unexpected happens in our lives.
This one experience has made me mentally strong. I can now handle pressure, focus on set goals, and intensely compete. Personal successes like when I dropped seconds in 400 or jumped 16 feet in the long jump were the result of working diligently at grueling practices. I was able to see how my hard work paid off despite the self-doubt, nervousness I encountered every time I stepped onto the track. Besides being active in sports I enjoy helping African American youth and disabled adults in the

I had a BMI of 37 going into my freshman year of college and my physician warned me numerous times to change my lifestyle. I dismissed their warnings with youthful ignorance. However, there I was laboring away on that treadmill, with only one response to those thoughts begging me to quit, “This pain is nothing compared to how you felt that day.” My dad was never out of shape, but he also wasn’t as healthy as his physician asked him to be. That fact did nothing to stop the heart attack he suffered months before my freshman year at Iowa. There laid my dad, unconscious with tubes protruding
They had won. James did it, he had done what he’d promised, to win it for Wesley, not for himself, not for his team, but for Wesley. He was crying tears of triumph, James had gone through so much, outlasting an injury, having his best friend die, no one would step in the way of James, no one. James didn’t party after the game, he didn’t do anything except go to the cemetery, where his friend was buried. He set the number 17 jersey on the gravestone, and wrote on the back right under the number 17 “We did it Wesley, we won the state title again, I wish you could’ve been here to share the moment with us.
