As a runner and as a student I believe in hard work and doing what is necessary for my teammates and my peers. That's what it takes to be successful both on the course and in the classroom. I have been running now for 5 years while maintaining good grades and a 3.8/4 GPA. I know first hand that anything you put your mind to you can achieve. And I have been taught that the word quit does not exist and that I will never fall into complacency in anything I do. That is what gets through training and through the struggles of life. I believe that any team that is willing to give me a shot will not regret it.
