So I had to do physical therapy and stretch out my legs. 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."
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. The training was hard, running for 2 hours, with only a few breaks for water and resting, everyday, for weeks.
On April 13th, 2016 I took part in my first cross country dirt bike race. Cross country racing is on an 10-20 mile track through the woods with hills, logs, large rocks, and many other obstacles to get past. Riders must battle the terrain for 2 hours to finish the race The race was about an hour north somewhere around Martinsville, Indiana. My dad could not go with me because of work so it was just my mom and I taking the trip there. My dad’s truck was with him at work so we were forced to borrow my cousin’s delivery van which only had one seat.
Practice: I decided to go to my field site for the first time on a Wednesday. I met one of my friends at her dorm around 3:30 so that I could walk with her to the fields. This was a bad idea on my part. She said we were running late and that we had to run there, however I haven’t exercised since my freshman year in high school. When we got to the field there was nobody in sight.
I 've run on purpose since summer 2012. I would go to a park close to home a few times a week to run on a one-mile gravel path that wrapped around the park 's perimeter. At the time, I was mostly concerned with running the one-mile loop as fast as I possibly could. I 'd run so hard in the mid-day heat that by the time I completed the loop I would be overcome with dizziness and an inability to catch my breath without laying on top of a nearby picnic
Hello, I am Micha Reed! I attend Arcadia High School & am considered a student-athlete. We were at the biggest meet of the year in Cross Country. The tension was high, I told my coach that the season hasn’t been the hottest for me & this is the meet where I show what I have been training hard for. The mens 3-mile race was about to start & we had to check in at the start line.
No other activity that I’ve participated in gives me the feeling running does. I get it, that’s very lame and vague of me to say. But there’s actually a thing called a “runner’s high”, which is basically just breaking down that mental bearer while running and feeling exactly how it sounds: high. Sounds totally insane, but I have no doubt it 's true. When someone has a strong run, they feel as though they can accomplish anything and all their stress goes away.
This shows that horseback riders work harder than someone playing football for 30 minutes, and yet, it’s just what equestrians burn when they’re warming up. On the other hand, some people think boxing is the toughest sport because it involves punching and violence. Meanwhile, boxing for thirty minutes only 270 calories for a 125-pound person. Thus, horseback riding is the toughest sport because we work harder than any other sport. To sum up, horseback riding or equestrianism is the toughest sport because there are different dangers that surround riding, there are troublesome activities you have to do around riding, and you work harder than other sports.
The day of April 15th, 2013 and the week that followed will always be engrained in my mind. Although this date may seem arbitrary to most, those who lived in Boston knew it as Patriots Day or Marathon Monday. For everyone at my school, it had always been a tradition to go down to the finish line to cheer on the racers, many of which were our fellow classmates and professors. Those who were lucky enough (as was the case for my fraternity and I) were selected to hand out water at Mile Marker 23, three miles away from where the bomb went off that day. Flash forward to the night of Thursday, April 18th, 2013; I am huddled in a corner with three of my friends in our dormitory - Forest.
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. When I heard it that 's when I was running as fast as I can then notice I had the lead the whole way, that 's when I become a track star.
Inspired by that moment, I joined a track club and became captivated by the pole vault. The spectacle of flying two stories through the air seemed like the perfect challenge. Despite living in a sport-centric town, no local pole vault coach would teach me at my age. So every week my dad and I drove 2 hours to train at a special club. Through the sport I challenged the limits of both my physical
Life without something you love doing is like wasting your time and effort out the window. It flew by like it was nothing, like I was nothing. You need goals in life to do and accomplish it because it is your dream or to get better to be the one to be the beast. Even if you are out of breath and your stomach hurts just keep going. Do not stop unless you have asthma.
