I haven’t been on tumblr like at all lately because I’ve been so busy, but I feel a post is necessary on behalf of my last cross country meet.
Cross country has been my life for the past four years and the fact that its over is definitely bittersweet. More than half my friendships now I met through cross country and it has taught me so much about myself and what I’m capable of accomplishing.
It also taught me how to live a healthy lifestyle. To be completely honest, if I didn’t do cross country I would be really unhealthy and most likely overweight. Food is a huge temptation to me, but running balances that temptation and proves that what you put in your body reflects in how you perform during the day.
All in all I know cross country will always be a part of my life. I’m making a promise to myself to continue living a healthy lifestyle in college and beyond. I also learned that hard work does show because from my first meet freshman year I’ve dropped 4 and a half minutes as of my PR yesterday of 21:00.
I can’t explain how thankful I am to have met the people I did, including the friends that will last a lifetime and the coaches who made me a better, stronger person. I’m sad its over, but so glad it happened.
This post ended up being longer than anticipated lol sorry not sorryx
