I would love the opportunity to run at a collegiate level. I have be very passionate about the sports of cross country and track since 6th grade. My 7th grade year, I came in 3rd at the state cross country meet. This challenged me to work harder and the very next year, I came in 2nd. Though I was happy with my performance, this has pushed me to be my very best, this year, I have put up the fastest 5k (15:53) and 3200 (9:39) meter race times for my grade anywhere in the state of Iowa.
