I've always considered myself an all-around athlete which is why I would like to take my track and field career to the next level by possibly getting into multi-sport events such as decathlon or heptathlon. The gold medalist for decathlon in the Olympics obtains the title of "the greatest athlete in the world" which I absolutely agree with. It tests all physical abilities. High school track and field doesn't have decathlons and in college at least I know that I can give it a shot. Track has also taught my to push to my very best under any circumstances. When your in a slump, bounce back. When you're doing great, get better. I know there is much more for me to learn throughout my track career that I can apply to everyday life which is why I plan on taking it to the next level.
I'm known to be the one to get groups together and include as many people as I can. When my friends are trying to plan something fun for us to do, they will often report to me because they know I am the one who can make it happen. Even though I really focus on my own goals and work hard for myself, I like to bring others along for the ride. I bring people together and even some friendships were made because of what I put together. I can do this with people on and off the track which is why I am grateful to have this gift.
I am definitely a strong believer in not cramming too much into my schedule. Everyone should have at least a little bit of free time to either relax or do some fun activities while staying involved in school or community functions. I maintain healthy eating habits the best I can including drinking plenty of water and having a consistent pre-meet meal plan. Cross country has really helped me understand this mindset and I have carried that over to track and field as well.
One example of how I get involved with my community is with a group at my church called EDGE. It's a religious education group for middle schoolers who are on their way to being confirmed. I've been asked by their leader to come by to give some talks here and there. I love talking about what I know and explaining it in a way for others to understand. I often make the connection of faith to athletics since many of them are athletes. It makes sense to them and I know they get something out of it when it comes from a high schooler. I have been getting a lot out of it as well. They say you understand things best when you are able to explain it to others. My faith is very important to me and I plan to carry it through college and so on.
