When I decided to become a runner there was one thing I never imagined happening. Someone asking me for advice. Yeah I know that doesn’t seem like much but really it is .I mean think about it , someone personally came to you in particular for tips. Its actually a great feeling.
The next greatest thing was the very first time I helped coach the track and field team at my highschool. I can’t even begin to explain how much I grew as a person that season.
I personally wasn’t aloud to run my Senior year—doctors wouldn’t allow. I had a heart condition and was out for three months. Sadly a highschool track season is about three months. I was obviously heart broken however something greater happened . I was able to watch a younger generation of kids develop unforgettable skills and talents. I witnessed it in such a way I never could have before. I felt touched and blessed to say the least.
Those kids looked up to me and trusted me of all people with their development.
Its truly an unforgettable and rewarding experience.
