Hello, my name is Kylie Meyer and ever since the fourth grade I have been participating in Track and Field, and striving to become a collegiate level athlete. Track and Field has taught me many important lessons and helped me grow as an individual. One of the most important lessons I have taken away from track is that staying positive even when you don't win will allow you to succeed in the future. Failure is not forever and that when you push away your doubts of failure and trust in your abilities they will allow you to be victorious again. My coach once told me “I can’t want it for you, while I might be your biggest supporter, in the end if you're going to win you're going to have to believe in yourself and do it,” For years this quote has stuck with me and made me a more passionate and driven athlete. I have learned that it takes hard work and determination to come out on top, and that you can't doubt your abilities if you're ever going to succeed. By trusting in my coaches, team, and family I know that I can strive for any goal I set and will have people who support me along the way. One of the biggest accomplishments my coaches have helped me reach is participating in the heptathlon. I cleared 4-4.75 feet, long jumped 14-3, ran a 2:41 in the 800 along with a 28.01 in the 200, threw 28-11 in shot and 70-04 in javelin. Without my coaches to help me along the way I never would have hopped reach my goal of competing the the heptathlon.
