When we woke up we were so ready to get on the boat and do it again. We ate breakfast and went straight to the boat. When our friends told us about the lake they told us that the lake had huge cliffs. My sister and I had been dying to go cliff jumping. As we rode down the 68 mile long lake looking for some cliffs to jump off we enjoyed looking at the beautiful scenery.
This time we both landed on our skis and I was so thrilled to tell the news to my mom, the rest of my family, and pretty much anyone who wanted to listen. This story demonstrates the importance of the core value, challenge. When I was attempting to ski down the cliff the first time, I couldn’t do it, but when I changed my strategy, I could land on my skis. My story shows the core value challenge because the cliff was an obstacle to overcome or a challenge. I believe in this core value because it makes people stronger by teaching them that sometimes, you need to change your strategy and make a new
It’s a lesson that I’ll never forget. Being taught how to ride a bike for the first time was exciting. I had turned six and my dad had promised me that he would get me this pretty pink glittery bike with training wheels I begged for. And teach me to ride it. I had never attempted to ride a bike before so I was extremely nervous.
Before climbing hills on foot, cycling possessed my passion for a couple of years as my only activity. After one year of riding with Tim, he announced that he would be climbing Mount Rainier. My response was simple; “good luck with that.” Though I began participating on training hikes with Tim as he prepared for his colossal challenge, the two of us continued to ride on a regular basis as riding the “Seattle to Portland” Bicycle Classic remained a mutual goal. Come to find out, the two activities of riding and hiking are terrific cross-training exercise. Both activities are worthy for leg strength, the respiratory system and endurance.
The next wonderful morning we all got ready quickly so we could spend as much of the day as possible at the ski resort that we heard great things about we planed to go to for the entire trip. As soon as we got to the ski resort everyone in our group got filled with enthusiasm, and especially when we walked past the main building opening up to a huge hill with a big grey ski lift lifting people from the ground to the top of the hill where you could go down the hill in little carts surrounded by plastic half pipe tubes ending in a whirl of excitement. Since there was only two to a seat on the ski lift me and, the oldest of the other families kids, jake went together. The trip up the hill was not as i expected because jake soon couldnt himself and started to shake the entire ski life wire which also shook the people in front of us and behind us. Eventually we reached the top of the hill where i was the first of my group to go down the halfpipe tube of plastic.
In the short story “Marble Champ” by Gary Soto teaches us a lesson that if you work hard you will succeed. A scientist named Albert Einstein once said, “Life is like riding a bicycle. To keep your balance you must keep moving.” In the beginning of the story, we notice how Lupe learns that hard work pays off. For instance, she started doing push-ups on her fingers every day which made her fingers stronger and stronger. She also started squeezing erasers as hard as she could to build muscle in her thumb.
The sound of the speedboat roaring below, the exhilaration of floating high above the earth, the spectacular view of a beautiful shoreline - these are just some of the thrills that can be found when parasailing. Parasailing is a beloved pastime in Florida, but with every ascension to dizzying heights comes great risk. Many lawmakers believe that parasailing, as an industry, requires stronger safety regulations than those currently in place. Parasailing (also known as 'parascending ') has been around since the early sixties; over the past forty years there have been many safety upgrades to the original design of the parachute (parasail) used. The majority of parasailers, however, are inexperienced; they receive only minimal training before
When Iwas at that age, my parents decided to make new decisions in their lives for a better future. Eventually, we moved to Winter Haven, Florida. This decision was a 180 degree turn in my life since I was confronted with a new culture as well as a different language. I still remember my first day of school in the United States as if it were yesterday. That day was both atrocious and exhilarating because I had to learn to jump and fly alone.
I am someone who is passionate about biking. That doesn 't mean that I am the best at it. To be honest I think I might be the worst at it, but I still enjoy biking. Ever since I was 13 I 've been going on 40 mile bike rides by myself. I am just a person that likes biking in its entirety.
