Working out and bettering myself is a way of life for me and I am committed to running track at the college level. Even during my sophomore season when our track season was cancelled, I worked out every day and participated in some time trials with other track sprinters. Discipline through track and workouts is important to me and is a tool for improving my determination, perseverance, and character.
As I strive to achieve my goals, I focus my life on three major aspects: (1) Family, (2) Faith, and (3) Academics/Sports. I want to have a balance in life and balancing my priorities helps keep me on the right path to success in track. Track has given me this passion to push myself and make me a better person. It has helped me to focus on my goals and to stay on the path to success.
Both my parents were college athletes and they taught me that athletics is a way to develop character and integrity. I believe that. I want to be a part of a college track team to challenge myself and challenge my teammates to do their best, show their best, be their best. I want to give a college track program my best and be a valuable member.
I have a strong work ethic, am very competitive, and am working on improving my mental toughness at all levels. I seek directness from my coaches and teammates. I am very coachable and am eager to take my abilities to the next level each practice and each competition.
Faith is an important part of me being an athlete. It is a ground and a foundation both when times are tough and when they are good. Faith helps me stay strong in myself and to always remember that I am running because I have been blessed with an amazing talent and hard work ethic. Everyone has different gifts and I plan to use my gift to show off the Glory of God. He is my rock as I perform and run for him.
Because of my love for athleticism, working out, disciplining my body, and fueling it well, I am interested in pursuing a career in training and nutrition and I know that competing in track in college will help me have success both on and off the track as I pursue a degree and career.
