I reluctantly started running my sophomore year after much convincing from my older sister who is a runner in college. A couple weeks into my first cross country season, I quickly learned how much I loved the sport and that I was naturally gifted as well. I loved it so much that I decided to give up baseball to run track. I had been playing baseball since I was in 3rd grade but I didn’t regret the decision at all, I loved track even more. I’ve always wanted to be a college athlete and once I started running, I knew that I wanted to pursue it in college. My goal is to be able to attain a scholarship to help pay for college. But it isn’t just wanting to pay for college, I want to run in college because of my love for cross country and track and i don’t want that to end in high school.
To be a good leader, you have to hold yourself to a high standard so you can be a good example As a leader, your actions often have to speak louder than your words. You have work the hardest so your teammates can follow your lead and push themselves harder. On the field, that is a big focus, putting in the work and being an example. I always encourage and push my teammates to give their all. I always give my 100% in workouts and that allows me to be a better leader and influence to my teammates. Off the field, I’m a leader in school by always doing my best and encouraging my classmates to do their best as well. I also apply my leadership skills to hanging with my friends by making sure we stay out of trouble and pushing them to be their best overall selves.
As a runner, I know how important it is to be healthy so you can perform your best and avoid injuries. I make sure to stay hydrated, eat enough food everyday, and I try my best to get good sleep. Not just the basics though, I’m willing to push myself and train on my own during the off seasons so I can stay in shape and be prepared for the coming seasons.
I have been involved with quite a few service projects with my church. We have gone to houses in the community and done yard work for them. I also do service outside of my community as well, I have been on four mission trips with my church and during those mission trips we have held bible clubs for kids in the communities, picked up trash in parks, and help people with yard work. Community service is helpful to me that is a way I can serve people who are in need of help and make their lives a little easier and it is also a way of serving God and showing his love to others.
