Personal Highlights

I am a Junior at Galileo Magnet High School. I joined track my Freshman year. I compete in Indoor Track , Outdoor Track and CrossCountry. I have ran 500m to 5k. My favorite would be the 800 meter and 1 mile and 5k. Running has become my Passion. I love to set new goals and work hard to achieve them. I Love to compete.

I love to run 5ks in the Summer months and anytime I can find them local in addition to competing in school. I try to get in a 5k every couple months and have won several trophies and medals. I have competed in Rugged Maniac twice and Bone Frog with my family just to stay active and fit. I started running my Freshman year in HighSchool. Before this I took gymnastics for 3 years in middle school. In elementary school I took horse riding lessons and competed in several events winning ribbons.

During the summer in 2019 I went to Emory & Henry College for Train with Kenyans Nike Summer Camp. I got to train with the Emory and Henry cross country coaches and athletes. This year I will be going to Virginia Tech for the High Performance Distance Academy July 6-11th. I’m always looking for ways to improve my running times and to stay in shape. I love to find new ways to challenge myself.

Additional Questions:
