Have you ever ran in a cross country meet? I have ran in countless cross country meets; I have been running cross country for eight years now. Every race I run is a challenge, no matter what, because I push by body to its limit. Most people do not consider cross country to be fun.

Personal Accomplishment I remember it as if it was yesterday. The day I had been training weeks for, everything had come to this. The track and field district event, the most important event of the season. For a long time I had been training for long distance, the 1500 meter race.

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.

I have attended four different high schools in four years. I have always participated in sports throughout high school. Although after school activities have made a huge impact on my high school career, none have been more of an influence than football.
