Marching band is a sport because of the Physical exertion, the mental fitness, and the time it takes to practice. One reason why marching band is a sport is physical exertion. Everyone has to run and walk on the field which uses a lot of physical exertion because a study in 2013 by Vallee and Leander shows “that at some points during the show the performer 's metabolic rate was up on par with that of a marathon runner and that his heart rate in particular stayed elevated for extended periods of time” (Criswell 1). This is because they have to use energy to keep up to the pace that they are supposed to be at.

When I ecstatically approached him the next day and questioned him about the test, he said that I was ready for a class of a higher level and that mine was one of the best essays overall. The innate drive pushing me in track translated to my success not just in athletics, but academics. If I can overcome doubts with my schoolwork to achieve what I need, nothing can stop me from doing the same in every facet of my
This would only serve to be a cycle of pain and relief from each time I pushed myself harder than my body could take. As I furthered on through the Pain 101 course I began to better understand what it meant to pace myself and it began to become easier and easier for me to not fall back into that cycle, my goal setting helped me manage it too so that I had a goal to look forward to reaching. My goal that I have set for now is to be able to run/jog outside for more than and hours’ time as the weather starts to warm in
Through all of the segregation and financial struggles that Jesse Owens faced, he managed to become one of the fastest runners in history (Teen Ink). Throughout his life, he knew he was destined for running and achieving great things. (Teen Ink) He showed in his life that with a positive attitude, even going through hard times, a person can accomplish his/her goal (Teen Ink).

At the big race, Squeaky learns that her brother Raymond is actually a great runner and decides that she wants to train him and spend more of her time having fun and helping others.

“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.

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.
