I started running to increase my stamina for soccer. Then realized that my abilities were far greater than I had ever anticipated. My enjoyment for running has astronomically increased from that point. When considering goals, there are no limitations that hold me back. I like to think that if you can believe something, you can achieve it. I realize that I can do anything I put my mind to, whether it be in the classroom studying for an upcoming test or on the track training for that record I will achieve. An unforeseen enhancement to my experience has been the camaraderie established between myself and my fellow competitors. I am driven to succeed and there is nothing that will stand in my way.
