I introduced myself and asked if it were still possible to join the cross country team. Unlike today, where legally high school athletes are required to have a specific number of practices under their belt before they are allowed to compete, I was allowed to join the team immediately. After filling out a few forms, I thanked him for the opportunity. But, as I was leaving the room, he said “Just so you know, today is the team’s first race of the season and I’m going to let you run.
And running across the field and back and playing a scale and other warm-up exercises. Even knowing its boarding practicing on the field is necessary to winning the competitions. At the practice field we practice music, visuals, and/or set placement.
At East Technical High School, Owens set records in the 100 yard dash (9.4 seconds), the 200 yard dash (20.7 seconds), and in the long jump (24’ 9 ⅝’’) (“Jesse Owens”). Owens set these three records while studying for school and working whenever he could to help get food on the table (Teen Ink). Owens went to college at Ohio State University after he graduated from high school. He was forced to pay for his tuition by working three jobs in addition to his studies and track meets and practices (“Jesse Owens”). Owens went to the Big Ten Track and Field Championships in Ann Arbor, Michigan after recovering from a back injury.
Hi, it’s you, but younger. I am writing this letter so you can remember what you were like as a Freshman. Hopefully I haven’t changed too much in the past 4 years. Part 1: Me, Now: My goals are to graduate high school with good grades in all my classes.
Most dogs love to run so people should put them outside and since they love to run have a race to upgrade from running to a competition. In this paragraph, I will be explaining why it is bad to have the Iditarod races. First is that approximately in every race there has been a passing of one of the
Sebastian Reaves Dr. Hood English 10 Honors, Period 5 30 October 2015 Title Unexpectedly life can give you certain obstacles, you have to fight through those obstacles to get through life. Last year, I joined the cross country team and I am still on it today. Running has affected my life a lot and has changed my lifestyle. Additionally, running has made me a stronger individual.
"To give anything less than your best is to sacrifice the gift." -Pre. Cross Country is a sport that requires pushing oneself through immense pain to achieve a goal. I never wanted to go through any of those pains to achieve anything. I used to think that I was going to participate in an after school activity for fun, but then my cross country team won the state championship meet, now I know I can do anything I put my mind to.
It was then I realized I wanted to do just that, so I committed myself to cross country. Cross country in middle school was nothing compared to high school cross country. First of all, the teams were a lot
The student use to call me speedy every time we have recess outside or gym class everyone wanted me on their team because I was fast and quick. When we play football, I would just get the ball and run straight without being touch, or tackle by anyone that 's when I notice I can run track and compete with the older kids. My first time running track I was a bit nervous because I was racing against older kids. It was the 200-meter dash was my face race, I would close my eyes and wait for the gunshot to go.
I had really good personal records this season and I intend to keep my goal of amazing PRs. My goal this season was to get under 20 minutes and outrun lots of runners. For my 18th birthday, I was in the TH, which is our local newspaper, and there was a quote from The Maze Runner with the title, "We 've got a runner!". My parents made a comment to the paper, "Our little boy is all grown up." That made me feel ecstatic and accomplished.
Growing up, I never thought I would be pursuing a career in the medical field. I can remember stages of my childhood where I wanted to be a teacher, a horseback rider, and even The President. The turning point for me was The Running Dream. I read this book when I was a freshman in high school, and it was so good that I realized what I wanted to do for the rest of my life: work with prosthetics. The book The Running Dream by Wendelin Van Draanen is about a high school track and field prodigy, who lived and breathed to run.
I am out for a run training with my friend from the track team. The air is crisp and dry, like any other winter day in New England. We are training for an upcoming indoor meet where Coach is hoping to dominate the distance events. The two of us are forced to run outside because our school only has three treadmills, which which are reserved for the girl’s team. We take the usual route following various side streets until reaching the trail.
Being an athlete takes raw talent, drive and time management in a busy life. Throughout my career as an athlete at Sutton Memorial high school I have participated in some of the most demanding sports including cross country indoor and outdoor track. Being on these teams for over six years I have had the honor of seeing legends rise and fall. Athletics are important but academics are still crucial to my future, and my secondary education. I have recently been accepted and admitted to Bryant university to enroll in their accounting/ CPA program to complete my interests in business and enable my future career as an accountant.
In the future, I would like to become a medical assistant. This career seems to be a perfect match for me because I have been an EMT for 16 years. I have always had a passion for helping people in their time of need, ever since I was a little kid. I would be the person out on the playground trying to help others, when they got hurt. I would be the kid when the fire department came to the school, for a public relations event, that would be right in the middle of them asking questions.
I wish I could include a picture of me playing soccer with this essay because that was all I did from age five to fifteen. Soccer was life for ten years so most people are surprised to hear that the fall of my senior year in high school I will Captain of my high school Cross Country team. How I became Captain of a running sport is an accomplishment I never saw coming. If you had asked me in elementary school, middle school, or even my first two years of high school if I would do anything but play soccer I would have said never. I am the youngest of three boys.
