Personal Statement

My name is Marissa Tankelewicz and I am a senior at Saint Huber High School. I am a legacy student at the school, with my Aunt Jenn, and numerous cousins having attended prior to me starting school. I have been running track and cross country since seventh grade. I am currently ranked twelfth in my class and have a full roster of honor classes. I chose Saint Hubert’s because it fit.

Running is a sport that is different from most. While running, you run alone as a single competitor, at the same time, you run overall as a team. Running has taught me a great deal about myself. It has taught me that talent alone does not always win the race. It takes training, a lot of training and hard work to maintain the level of fitness that is required to compete with the best. I have learned to be disciplined in my training. I train every day. I have learned about sacrifice, because there are times when I want to go out with my friends but complete my training instead. It is a sacrifice I want to make. Running has taught me about sportsmanship.  Having a team mate or fellow runner injured in a race, or not doing well. I always encouraged my teammates along and cheer for them. Running has taught me to be mentally strong. Without a strong mentality, running can wear you down. Many times during a race, my brain tells me that I can’t do it. That is when I bear down and get myself mentally strong and prepared for a tough finish. Running has taught me that I’m not alone, that teammates are there to pick me up.

My plans for the future include attending a University and running for the track and cross country programs. I have aspirations of running at the University of Oregon and running on the same track Steve Prefontaine ran on. I have had conversations with a former runner from Villanova University, who has brought me out to her farm to train. But mostly, my goal is to be the first one in my family to attend college and complete my bachelor’s/masters degree majoring in Nutrition and Exercise Science.

 “To give anything less than your best is to sacrifice the gift.”  ~ Steve Prefontaine
