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.
I had a unique beginning to organized running. I may be one of a very small handful of people that can claim that their first high school cross country practice was on the same day as their first high school cross country race. When I was in middle school, I couldn’t wait to go to high school. Not for the academic opportunities, not for the social prospects, but to play sports. I loved all sports, especially baseball.
I played line, but I occasionally got to run the ball and I never will forget the first time I scored. I participated in flag football, and we were playing at the old middle school and I took the handoff outside and as I was running down field, I turned around and almost fell, but I still scored. After the year had ended, year two came around and I didn’t really want to play, but
According to Lax Power, nearly 70% of the high school lacrosse stars end up outraging their coaches mid way through their career, while the other 30% race away from the sport all together. Even though this happens to lacrosse players all over, it is also common among all different types of athletes in different sports including: field hockey, bass fishing, etc. However, If Johnny “The Rocket’ Carson (a high school lacrosse star) can overcome this fame, then why can’t you? With the help of my ten part seminar you too can become a glorious high school lacrosse star.
As a freshman in high school, I immediately wanted to immerse myself in everything the school had to offer. Any club, sport, class, you name it, I probably tried it at least once. In middle school I was in track and field with high jump being my main event. In the 8th grade, I made states for high jump and competed with kids, who I thought at the time, were the best of the best, the cream of the crop. With this in mind, I joined the high school 's track team my freshman year for the indoor track season.
As I grew up my love for running grew. I even have ran five 5-K races, and plan on running more. Most of the ribbons I received was in track. The races I ran in track was the 4x8 and the 4x4, all long distance races. In the 4x8 we received first places ribbons, and with are 4x4 we received second place ribbons.
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. The enjoyable part is definitely not the race itself, but the feeling afterwards knowing that I kept pushing myself when my body and mind were both telling me to stop.
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.
Where I attend school it 's a lot bigger and my school has an amazing running program. I run cross country and track, my passion is running and my goal is to run in college. I knew if I moved it would hard for me to be able to accomplish my goals , because the new school is small as little no running teams. After explaining all this to my mother we talked it over and we
Andrew Lake is a track and cross country runner for Canton high school. He has ran competitively since seventh grade. it wasn’t until freshman year when he became more invested in the sport and soon after dedicating more time during sophomore year he became a varsity runner and continues to run to this day.

It was time for the four by one hundred meter relay. With my relay team stretched,warmed up, and ready to go, we headed towards the stadium where we would race against the fastest girls in the nation. Intimidated but not deterred we headed out of Tent City and into the gates of Turner Stadium. Knowing this was my last race I would run with my close friends and relay team, being it 's the last race of the season and we all weren’t going to be in the same age group next year, I had a whole new mind set. I was constantly thinking, “we have to make top ten because we can make top ten.” “We have the times, we have the strength, we have the speed, we just need to have the guts to walk in there like we are going to shred the track into pieces.
