I started running cross country and track when I was in the 6th grade for the Bozeman Track Club. I discovered that I really loved to run, and I enjoyed making friends along the way. I'm now in my fourth year of running and I am a freshman in high school. Cross country is by far my favorite activity and I love the team aspect of it. I look forward to running with my teammates this summer and throughout the rest of high school and college. I also strive to do well in school and have maintained a 4.0. I think that running helps me balance my time and schoolwork well. I try to remain positive throughout track and cross country seasons for better outcomes in running and school. I look forward to my next cross country season.
