Motocross riders know the risks but ignore them so they can keep racing. Motocross crashes, most the time are not small little cuts or bruises, they are usually life threatening and bone breaking. Recovery time from these injuries are not very fast either. It takes physical therapy for long periods of time. “Eventually, and somewhat traumatically, there comes a time in every rider’s life when the body seems to break faster than it heals, and a hard decision must be made.”(Admin) Yet, riders of this sport know the risks and still throw their legs over the
Through this failure, however, athletics has taught me how to get up, move on, and learn from my mistakes. Hurdling has impacted me beyond the track, as I have learned that my life is like a race.

After losing my childhood hero, I was left to figure out how to overcome the devastation that came over me and how to gather enough courage to move
To get better at a sport, you have to keep training, not studying. In the passages, What Could Be Better Than A Touchdown by Kelefa Sanneh, and Why We Run, by Bernd Heinrich, you can really see where I’m coming from. Being an athlete takes a lot of practice and training your body physically. In the passage What Could Be Better Than A Touchdown, the author is trying to explain how if Folk would have missed the extra point, “the Vikings would have been able to tie the game with a touchdown drive and a two-point conversion.” This was possibly not the best choice for him, some people thought, but he did what he felt was right. He learned this way; he was trained this way.
Based on Jane McGonigal Ted Talk, “The game that can give you 10 extra years of life” I believe my biggest strength is Physical Resilience. I find that physical resilience is the way of getting through your troubled times through physical/athletic opportunities. My fear is let go when I run, running has been my safe places in which I can get out of the real world and spend time daydreaming about all the good. Sports has been my way of physical resilience and my method of understanding the world. My mind is filled with stress and fear, but that is all let go when I get to the first mile of my race.

Both the book and the film share themes of overcoming discrimination. Jackie Robinson’s case was different than Liesel’s, because he was fighting against all odds in sports to become famous. Whereas Liesel wasn’t famous but was fighting for her, her family, and Max; she had to be careful with what she did and keep secrets. On the contrary, Jackie and Liesel both had to fight through countless accounts of discrimination and they both had to be careful not to get in trouble and be smart about their decisions. Fighting discrimination and creating an equal society takes great wisdom and strength.

“My favorite part of running is running with my team. Obviously running really hurts and takes a lot of energy and training, but it is much easier when you can train alongside your friends and teammates. Going through such intense training brings us very close together and I’ve made some of my best friends on the team.” Speaking of friends, Lakes teammate, Braden Heimbaugh adds “The team brotherhood that we share is the main motivation and driver through the intense workouts that we do.” Lake continues “Another thing I really like about running is the feeling of accomplishment when I’m done. It feels really good to have completed a tough workout, especially if I’ve hit all my times” But not all aspects of running can be positive. “My least favorite part of running is definitely the stress and pain.

During his journey to the NFL Jason Pierre Paul used many habits of mind to help him get through his problems. He used persisting because he could have easily given up and retired, but he didn’t. He also used the habit of mind striving for accuracy because he had to try a lot harder as a result of his hand impediments.

He uses the habits of mind thinking flexibly and creating, imagining, and innovating to find new ways to tackle with only one normal hand.
I magically picked up my sports shoes again, finally decided to continue my run. And when I finally went back to my team with Coach Chavez, I 'm even more determined that it 's indeed an unexpected luck for me to meet such an inspiring coach who led me to the eventual realization about myself, how I was encircled and almost suffocated by my narrow ego which I looked upon as wisdom. With her, I recognized that in the running towards one 's pursuit, only with the commitment and efforts to one 's utmost, victory could be achieved. And now, as I look up to those athletes, not only that I no longer detest their opinions, I too, join their camps, looking forward to run once again to my heart 's content, with the beginning
League of Denial The “League of Denial” video made me feel upset and worried. It made the game of football to me mean a lot more than just a game.
