As it was almost time for me to start running, I was so excited. When they called my name to run, the butterflies in my stomach built up more and more. The first event was the states race the one event that I don 't practice a lot. My run was really fast but not fast enough to keep up with these people. The next event was the poles.
I will wholeheartedly admit deciding to run has been one of the best decisions of my entire life, who knew your parents could be so right. My experience has been so much more than learning to be a better runner. The number of times I have heard Mr. Berzonsky speak about character or the pyramid of success is too many
I believe hard work and a strong work ethic to be imperative in achieving success and finding genuine happiness. While it may cause stress and pain in the short term, obtaining the ability to push through and overcome obstacles that every person faces in life leads to long term happiness and success. Growing up, I moved several times, and as a result I have faced multiple uncomfortable, difficult situations. Therefore, I have grown in character, leaving positive impacts on my relationships, school work, athletics, and more. Specifically, I improved immensely in cross country this last season, a sport I thoroughly enjoy and am extremely dedicated to.
Since sophomore year, I barely missed the state track meet and the Free State record by a couple of inches. After my last track meet in my junior year, I was determined to finally accomplish the 35’11 triple jump that I aspired for years. I became committed to the sport, training every morning and evening to perfect a jump that a Free State student has not accomplished. Little by little, I grew out of the goal, realizing that there are more important objective in life to worry about and to
We are going to be in high school in less than a year! Now, just thinking about it, I am a little nervous. My guts are flipping and flopping if I think about it, just like 5th grade. I better just block it out, or better yet, I just need to find a time machine and skip some of
It still is important to me because me and my brother do a lott together and get along very well. 1st Grade In first grade I was riding my bike down the development trying to go “no hands”. Witch I had done before and had been good at.
We may not have accomplished all of our team goals, like winning the league, but the season was still great. My favorite memory was senior night because I was able to go out one last time and play in front of the home crowd. I remember coach telling me to go out there and do what I do best. That night I played one of my best games all season scoring three
I had never ran hurdles before, so I was quite excited. The first time trying it, I ran and jumped. Everything went well; I was quite confident about it. For the second round, I ran and jumped just like the first time, but it didn't turn out like what I had expected. I hit the hurdle and fell down badly.
Every practice involves non-stop running to the point of exhaustion, while working on quick agility. After every lacrosse practice players are usually confined to the ground, or breathing like they just ran a marathon. Identical to soccer, lacrosse involves accelerated sprints back and forth between down a pitch. Therefore, the team who can run the fastest controls the game, which is why lacrosse coaches push their players to extreme lengths. The usual practices don't just involve sprints, but ladders and reflex drills along with sprints.
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
When his grandma was in college, she had competed in track. His sister Tiffany joined track and field in high school. When they race at home Tyson would always win and get excited. After the races Tyson said that “she inspire me.”
We all celebrate our exciting moment of victory, but months later the tryouts for the summer travel team would happen. The fun-filled first day was also nerve-wracking, but we all have each other like a family. Then, the next day of tryouts with starting sprints and stretching. Next, the contact portion - tackling with passing - came upon us faster than we thought. The first times through the drill went well, but it’s finally my turn after waiting in line.
This completely lifted his confidence he could finally see that he was more than the troublemaker of his family. His success grew rather quickly, because his goal was to get to the next Olympic games. He is always training and training to keep improving. When it comes almost time to try out for the Olympic trials Louie knows that he will never be fast enough to qualify for the mile race he has been training for. Instead of giving up and calling it quits on his running career Louie takes a different approach.
Football has been my favorite sport since I could run. Running free in the grass with friends and family made me appreciate the the quality of life I was blessed to have. Senior year of high school I went from league champions to below .500 records. Lake Winaukee was where the team would prep and practice for the upcoming season. As a senior, I felt I was obliged to help my team win football games and the place we could create chemistry was Lake Winaukee.
