Prior to my first day of practice I mistakenly prepared myself for failure. I remembered my coach telling me at the minimum we would be running four miles a day I order to get prepared for our first meet. By the time I finished pondering how long four miles would take, my team had already vanished and left me behind. I knew I had only been running approximately five minutes, however my body felt as if it had been running
As a proud member of the Mercedes Tiger Band color guard and drill team, a lifetime goal for me would be to join a marching band and/or college dance team. Coming into high school I never thought my passion would be to be performing in front of hundreds of people every Friday Night for four years. It has become my passion and it brings me much joy to perform and have the time of my life on that football field. I have had an amazing four years participating in many extracurricular activities but I have found that my biggest passion is colorguard. I have grown to love the sport.
My legs got wobbly as everything began to spin and the next thing I knew I was falling to the ground. Starting cross-country my senior year was terrifying, but I am so grateful I did because this moment during my first race taught me a lot about my strength and persistence when I am tested with any type of challenge. It has allowed me to overcome anything I may face not only in running but in all aspects of my life. My senior year I switched from the Orange County School of the Arts to Edison High School and joined the cross-country team. I started training with the team over the summer.
The impression that most people get about my running cross country is that I'm always doing it. This assertion is actually not true, but it certainly seems that way to outsiders (those that don't run), and even I start to believe it sometimes. My training happens like clockwork, a routine that is both dependable and comfortable. Six or seven days out of every week I put on running clothes and hit the streets, sometimes training twice in one day if I need to get a certain number of miles in. I have run on my birthday and on major holidays; I ran the morning before I graduated high school and in three different states during a summer road trip with my best friend.
I’m now a captain and three year cheerleader at Brighton, 2 year United Spirit Association All-American Athlete, and planning to cheer in college. Cheer has given me so much, my best friends, a great relationship with my school and a positive high school experience. I have no idea who or where I would be today if I decided to quit that first horrible practice. Never give up, most things don’t make sense in the moment, but it was will always pay off in the long
Another time when I was faced with fear was my first ever high school cross country race. I was extremely worried that I would run a poor time and embarrass myself, even though I had no clue on what a good time or a bad time was. There was absolutely no pressure on me to run a certain time or be in a certain place, but my mind created a bunch of “what if” scenarios that put the fear of embarrassing myself in my head. When the race was over and everybody said that I ran a fast time for my first race, I realized that I there was nothing to be afraid of because there was no pressure other than the pressure I put on myself. However, I still get nervous before every race, but after my first race, I learned how to use those nerves and fear to push me to run faster rather than hold me back.
During the first grade I was the tallest and most athletic kid in my class at Hawk point elementary. One day I was outside playing during recess, my favorite class at the time. The only problem was I couldn’t play because my back felt like 90 year old man. I tried running no I couldn’t do that, I tried skipping and then taking off to a sprint but could even do one. Later that day I stood up from my desk and felt to worst pain I could ever imagine it felt like a lightning bolt went straight up my spine.
I also should have done better notes and study more, I did not study a single time, even though I always got over a 90% and a 95%, if I studied, I could have gotten all 100% I don 't think that my teacher needed to do anything to better help me master the concepts taught in this quarter. I like my teacher’s teaching style. He gives us work and we just have to do it quietly. I like this because in college most of the time we will do that and I’m being trained for
The time that I have succeeded was when I was a senior in high school and decided to join cross country. It may not sound like a grand success but to me it was. I was and still am one of the laziest people ever. I have no shame in saying that because it is obviously very true. When I decided to join cross-country, no one believed me and some even ridiculed me.
I looked forward to attending practice and I never missed a meet. I was excited to be apart of the team and I found happiness in doing so. This experience was much different than what I encountered with high school track. The environment and circumstances in middle school differed greatly from those in high school, which lead to a change in my viewpoint of the sport. In middle school there was much less pressure riding on the activity; if I didn 't like it or was not enjoying it I could quit the sport and there would be no long-term effects.
Repetitions are faster, longer, and more intense. In the senior’s final year, the goal is to win state one last time. Originally, our freshman year, the goal was to win state four years in a row; It was evident that goal would be hard to achieve, but knowing that made us work with more tenacity than ever before. This last cross country season is a bit of a redemption race for my team. November 7th is the last opportunity to show Missouri what Sainte Genevieve Cross Country is capable of.
High school is where he started to compete in track and field. While in high school Tyson raced and raced. Later, Tyson beats the school record on 100 meter race beating with 10.46 second. After finishing high school Tyson could not go to his choice of college (Division 1 sport college) because of his grades when he finished high school. He was focusing on racing than learning.
I never realized that years into the future I would fill their shoes, and carry the responsibility of being the person little girls looked up to. I didn’t know back then I would come the tremendously frightening and honoring understanding of how much I could influence a young person’s life. In our town there is a youth football program we have come to know as “Cadiz Biddy Football.” They start in August and play four teams two times each, then go into playoffs to see who gets to compete in the “Superbowl”. Along with the football program is a cheerleading program. Girls third through sixth grade sign up every year to cheer for the four quarters of every football game, along with doing a routine to entertain fans at halftime.
A failure can be a downward spiral or a setback turning into a benefit. When athletes experience head trauma, they only recover a little, which might end their career early or other times people never recover. In the case of my four month concussion, there are residual mental and physical problems. For me, this challenge helped me develop as a person than will work harder and strive for the best in my academics. Running onto the field, I can 't believe we won it - the High School Girls ' Rugby Championship.
Competition only occurs when one reaches the junior year of college because the availability decreases as the number of years increase, since Warhawk Academy has exclusive features such as; discounts on books, un-restricted parking, and early access to technology. Selectiveness is not a major concern because as long as one keeps a grade-point average of a 3.8, admission will be granted. Lastly, other organizations might mention the attitude of the members. According to Bentley University, entering into organizations will help one find out about themselves: and this “self-awareness will be beneficial in your future career.” Members are required to show respect and have leadership skills in all situations to successfully accomplish this
