High school running has been a pure individual sport where all different types of athletes come around the world and run. Running in general teaches you how to live a different life style as human. Running in high school is a good competition at a higher level of performance. Runners in school will have joy, challenges, and young runners what might become their lifestyle for the next several decades. For running there are two sports in high school cross country and track and field.
It is hard to imagine my current life without running. I have been doing cross-country and track every year since 5th grade. Every day I look forward to my run refreshing my body and clearing my mind. As of writing this essay, I have run 147 of the past 153 days in training for cross-country. I have trained with the same group of guys for a vast majority of these runs.
Driving by a high school on a warm, Fall day, it is easy to notice all of the athletes. Soccer players are on the soccer field, cross country is running laps around the track, tennis players are practicing on the courts, the football team is in the weight room, and volleyball players have a match in the gym. No matter what sport it is, every high school athlete dedicates countless hours to their sport. Although playing sports is a big time commitment, they teach students important lessons that cannot be learned in a classroom. Background Sports play a major role in the life of many Americans.
Wrestling in front of hundreds of screaming, passionate wrestling fans made me almost sick to my stomach. I love playing with a team and working with a unit to win games. Each sport occurs at a different time during the year. Wrestling begins half way into November and lasts three quick months of winter. In the contrary, football begins at the start of the summer and goes to the end of the fall.
The usual practices don't just involve sprints, but ladders and reflex drills along with sprints. Just when practice seemed to be over, the words “Eagles,” were shouted it would cut down the team’s happiness. Although the training throughout the season would be brutal, and cause a tremendous deal of pain, enduring all of it for the end goal is well worth all the
I am planning to run track in the spring, but I hope I can do more events than just the 1 mile and the 4x400m relay. I am surprised how fast middle school has gone by. We are going to be in high school in less than a year! Now, just thinking about it, I am a little nervous. My guts are flipping and flopping if I think about it, just like 5th grade.
But after about 1 mile I was feeling a pain that I've never felt anything like before. The enduring feeling of a broken waist, burn through my lungs, and the need for so much water. The failure to run 2 miles bothered me so much. I felt so disappointed in myself. After that, I decided to make it my goal to keep running every day until I could reach the distance without stopping.
I also saw many of my peers doing the exact same thing. I witnessed firsthand how procrastinating had made my life and the life of those around me so much harder and stressful than it needed to be. I have struggled with my bad habit of procrastinating for a long time and although it has gotten better, I still haven’t completely overcome it. It’s something that affects my life everyday. Not only that, but it’s a conscious decision I still choose most of the time.
Track and field day was coming soon, I was with my third grade class ready to practice for running hurdles in PE class. I had never ran hurdles before, so I was quite excited. The first time trying it, I ran and jumped. Everything went well; I was quite confident about it. For the second round, I ran and jumped just like the first time, but it didn't turn out like what I had expected.
