You 'll never be an outstanding runner. On a good day you 're mediocre, on a day like today, you 're horrific. That race, and the world-shattering heartbreak that followed, forever changed the way I saw running. I discovered that even hard work is not always invincible at the hands of fate. As soon as I scraped my sweaty hands into the dirt and pulled myself up to go face my team a startling realization occurred to me.
I have been waiting since the start of summer for this day, the day to go against Topeka West the school that have been talking stuff for the longest. There was so much hype about this game and it was finally here, when the bell ringed at the end of the day i rushed out of class and got on the bus to head over to chandler our practice field. When we got there we all the football players loaded off the bus and when we got off there was a table of chips,water,gatorade,PB & J and fruit snacks so we didn’t play on an empty stomach. After we ate and got ready coach talk to us for a little bit and then we got on the bus to head to Hummer sports park, it was a loud bus but i don 't think coach cared because we was hype going to play t-west. Topeka high and Topeka west have been rivals for ever in almost every sport but mainly football.
I wish I could do more but I have strict orders to just watch and report. It was a normal evening I watched and was about to go back to camp but then I heard a rushing in bush next to me. My heart starts beating twice as fast, the sweat on my face felt like bullets. I make my way over to
They were on the 50 yard line 20 rows up. Our friends had season tickets. They live in Utah so they gave them to us because we live closer to the Big house. We were so excited to go. We got up at 6 am which means we had an hour to get ready 2 hours to get there, 1 hour for lunch, 1 for shopping and getting in.
They had to get really close to the fire and it was scorching hot. It was dangerous for them to get close to the fire. They also stroke another box but it sent them a mile away from the O 'leary 's house. They had to hit the old fire engine to let water
they thought my stories were so cool even though they were all bull shit. we ate lunch and had a great time on the bus then we arrived and the middle school field``. we were walking too our locker room and the other team walked right passed us and i saw him, the big boy. he was 20 pounds heavier and two inches taller but i knew i would destroy
and The Tooth of Time. Once we finished training, we got on a bus with three other crews and we embarked on a trip of a lifetime. Along the way we stopped in New Orleans, The Alamo, The Davis-Monthan Air Force Boneyard, and The Grand Canyon these were just some of the stops. Along the way we slept, ate, and laughed just to distract us from what was ahead. When we actually arrived in New Mexico, we spent a day the base camp at Philmont.
Then about that time we feel off , and the four wheeler started to roll back I yelled, “Veronica move now !” before i could look back and move, the four wheeler was right at me ,and ran right over my leg I screamed, “Veronica!! Veronica!! get daddy” Veronica said, “oh my goodness will you be okay while I am gone ? !” I cried, “yes
When I found out we were going zip-lining in Costa Rica I couldn 't believe it I have always wanted to go zip lining and now I can check that off my bucket list ! that morning we woke up got our friends, and got on a tour bus to take us there to the place to go zip-lining. When we got there we got our harnesses on, Climbed the ladder to go up in the high trees, then my stomach dropped when i got to the top. I knew that I needed to face my fears, even if it was I was frightened! Then again I was only seven!
We stayed in the resort so that things were more continent. I remember that my family and i 's hotel rooms were connected, and we could see each other and make plans. After we got there we unpacked and got everything ready and headed to the bus stop and waited for the Magic Kingdom bus. As we waited my cousin Vance and I were ecstatic and couldn’t wait we talked about all the
I had no idea what he was talking about and asked him to explain. He told me that I had torn my ACL and that I would need surgery within the next couple of weeks, putting an end to my freshman year of softball. Through all the strength training before surgery, the actual surgery, through physical therapy for months afterwards, I realized I loved learning about how all the treatments and tape jobs worked and how they were done. I found myself asking questions about almost everything that was being done to me. Not just for my own injury, but just to gain knowledge about anything I could pick up.
Every three to five minutes the teacher would blow the shrieking whistle and the kids would have to rotate to a different station. After all the stations, it was time for the seventh graders to change back into their school clothes and leave gym class. The teacher showed the kids seven different ways on how to grow your muscles. At the end of the day, the seventh graders learned about the different exercises that anyone can use to maintain or grow their
I didn 't respond back to that loud scary voice, not realizing it was santa, I just got up off the floor and ran for my life. “Catch her!” everyone screamed. I ran and ran until my legs couldn 't carry me anymore. I found a corner to hide in and i hear voices saying which way did she go, and here are her footprints. All of a sudden they found me and started to close in on me.
Also, I threw up so we had to stop at a resting stop to change my close. We also had to wait and hour until I felt better. In addition to, when we finally got their and I saw her and I instantly fell in love with her. She was so small and she could fit in my palm when I was 7. Also, we started to drive home and my dog started to do something funny, when my dad rolled down the window, my dog started to try to eat the air.
My grades reflect my efforts at school, the treatment of me by my sister was indicative of how many names I had called her that day. Yet, there is still one issue that I’ve always wondered about. One could say that my experience in cross country has been far from normal. One year, I was running a thirty-minute 5k, and ranked eighty-sixth on the team. The
