I didn’t even know what cross country is before I came to this school. And by the end of the season, I was one of the best runners in the team. This transition didn 't come from nowhere. I was literally the slowest person in the whole team(including girls) when the season began. And I remembered what one of the girls in the team told me: Kenny, just go join another activity, there is not chance for you to make the APAC team.
3-5 The children were at lunch and they have been given more opportunities to develop their independence skills. Lunch time was a social event and the children and staff were chatting and enjoying their food. The learning environment was tidy and the areas were set up for the children to return to after lunch and planning was evident and relevant to the children’s needs and stages of development. Action and Timescale (if
Being a NCAA Division II athlete during my time at American International College was blessing in disguise for me. Many people do not look at Division II college athletes in the same light as Division I athletes. Interestingly enough, unlike Division III college athletes, DII are held to the same standards and rules as Division I. We have to maintain a certain GPA, we cannot work more than 10 hours a week, we are drug tested on a monthly basis, and we endure two-a-days on a daily basis. Going into college, athletics were always first priority to me; but after being a regular starter on my soccer team entering my junior year, my priorities were completely reversed.
Around the water fountain is a place to be with friends and family because there you can spend a good evening drinking coffee while listening to the water fountain. Another reason I want to move there is because around the water fountain there are benches to sit and relax. Reston is often visited it because it has a metro. For example, many people ride the metro to get to work and school. Reston’s metro has many accommodations.
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
The summer going into my Junior year of high school, I started volunteering at a retirement community called The Legacy down the road. I helped out by playing games with residents, talking to them, and helping with the weekly socials where we serve treats like pie and ice cream. Not many of my friends understood why I would take the time out of my day and spend it at The Legacy. To answer their question, it is because many of the residents at The Legacy do not have family nearby and have not seen their children, sisters, brothers, etc. in many years, so even a simple conversation with them can really brighten their day.
We’re going to the state fair to experience socialization and to come home and have a smile on our face. We’re going to the state fair to witness the other person’s actions. We’re going to the state fair to watch others have a heart of a child. We’re going to the state fair to witness other actions and compare our actions to theirs. We’re going to the state fair to witness the other person’s emotions.
It was fun to just walk around and occasionally chat with a passing student. Each person we had a conversation with was friendly, which is not usually the case at other colleges. The whole trip was incredible, and even though I was sick, I had one of the best days. I thoroughly enjoyed every minute and I am so glad that I decided to go on the trip. If the ASL club decides to do more of these trips in the future, I will definitely come
Before my senior year began, I wasn’t wasting my time running around, but I was definitely running. I ran a total 442 miles to train for the full Towpath Marathon this fall, which I completed at the age of 17. Running a marathon is definitely a NTA, as most teenagers spend their time running away from challenges, while I tackled the 26.2 mile obstacle feet first. Within 48 hours after the race, I set a new goal of running the distance in every state of America, and am now training for Marathon 2 of 50.
