I want to have the opportunity to run in college because I believe it would be helpful for me to have more to my college experience than just earning a degree- that will definitely be my first priority, but I think being a part of a team would give me a competitive and social atmosphere that would keep me on task and promote good time management skills while also helping me to stay in shape and keep competing. If I do not end up running for a varsity team in college, I still plan to join a club team just to be able to keep competing and be surrounded by others who love to push themselves and achieve more, just because I love the competitive element I have been surrounded with throughout my entire life.
I have been team captain on my track and cross country teams for the past two years, so I have been able to lead my team in warmups and on our running routes around the town. I am also able to help my teammates out in the first weeks of school while the freshmen are adjusting to high school and by setting up team bonding activities that help us all to grow closer as a team and boost team morale and spirit. I also like to lead by serving as an executive for different clubs and activities, many of which I am able to help encourage girls from my sports teams to join or to encourage girls from the academic clubs to try running.
I try to improve my running performance by taking good care of myself so that I am able to run throughout the year and stay healthy, something that also helps me as a student. I like to make and eat healthy meals and snacks and I drink plenty of water and get as much sleep as I can, which helps me to be ready for classes and races. I try not to overload myself with too many activities, but running is calming for me, so when I do get tired or worn down, it relaxes me while helping me stay in shape. Also, I do set aside time for classwork each night, as school comes first for me and has to be put ahead of running sometimes.
I am an active member within my church and my church's youth group, where I assist by attending retreats as a leader to the students in Confirmation classes and serving as a lector during masses. I am also Secretary of my school's NHS chapter and I volunteer at the local Sparrow Hospital every weekend. I enjoy doing these activities because I am able to help other students in the church like older students helped me when I was attending Religious Education classes and I am able to gain exposure by working at the hospital while helping others at the same time.
