I developed a passion for running in the 7th grade when I first started track and field and as I have grown as a runner that passion has grown as well. Running has helped to mold who I am today and makes me want to do better. I want to run in college in order to continue what I love to do and better myself as a person. I have a large determination when I set a goal and am willing to do whatever is needed in order to get it done. I believe in hard work and feel that cutting corners in training only comes back to hurt you when it really counts. I also want to continue to push myself further everyday and continue to go the extra mile in order to get improve.
