Athletes & Parents,
I meant every word I said today at practice.
Running is a beautiful sport. It requires a special person to dedicate months, and even years, to the difficult training which is necessary to reach your potential. The beauty arises in the mere minutes of glory we feel when we have a good race. It reveals itself in the knowledge that we have pushed ourselves past what we thought was possible. It is the realizing that we belong to an exclusive tribe that knows all good things come through hard work.
We have climbed mountains together. We have dragged ourselves through valleys. We have picked each other up when we have fallen. We have celebrated successes and provided shoulders to cry on and we have learned that each passing day brings a new opportunity for challenge and living life.
Go to the start line this weekend knowing all of these things and simply go for it! Your sisters, coaches, and parents will be there for you no matter how well you run, but don't cross the finish line doubting yourself. Finish the race knowing that you gave it your all!
Please see the schedule below:
- Race 9 Frosh/Soph 8:00 am (Madison, Tanlee, Mia, Renee, Amy, Brittany, Rylee, Katelyn)
