“Effective leadership is not about making speeches or being liked; leadership is defined by results not attributes.” This quote is said by Peter Drucker.

The best leader on the island was Ralph. Ralph was not only a good leader, but also intelligent. He was the person who found the conch shell.

At the end of those talks he says I got the one bad race for the season out of the way. In practices he corrects my running form every chance he gets.

Coach Krock is strong but during practices can sometimes be a little soft, if we get lucky he reduces the workout so it’s not as long. Coach Krock is not only there for me during season, but out of season as well. If I would ever need someone to talk to on the weekends or even during the week days, he is a good person that could help in minutes. He knows what to say to make all situations seem better. I wouldn’t be the runner or person I am today without his
