    be the sport for you? Do you enjoy running? If the answer is yes to either of those questions, you may think that soccer and cross country are the same thing or have the same concept, but they don’t. With soccer and cross country both being sports that teach endurance and sportsmanship, they also offer different circumstances and objectives. High school soccer and cross country can be totally different, but that does not mean they do not have any similarities. A few similarities would be; the category of sport that they fall in and practice makes perfect. Soccer is a game that involves a lot of running, thus falling into a running category.

At that point in time, I couldn’t believe what had just happened. I had placed in the top 15 of my race, and this wasn’t just any meet… this was districts. As most people know, I have run cross country since the beginning of 7th grade. Running has a lot of ups and down for me. Along with most of our teammates, I will groan when our coach says it’s…

    About a year ago at this time, I was training for the NYC half marathon. I’d never really taken to running in my life, despite always being pretty active. This was different. After I’d recently lost my mom, running connected me to something larger. When the cold winter air came into my lungs, I knew each breath was all I needed to keep going. It allowed me a space to surprise myself and as long as I kept at it, I constantly did surprise myself-- in strength, commitment, and fortitude. It was the…

    Your heart is racing, running as fast as your body will possibly allow, kicking up dirt with every aching pace. Close behind three young boys on bikes, turning back to see them gaining ground. Time begins to slow as you initiate a full blown sprint, something you’ve never been able to do because of scoliosis of spinal condition you were born with.

    High school Track and Field was a sport that I participated in as a sophomore. Through the strenuous practice and the intense track meets, hard work was not the only lesson to learn. Even when you were pushing yourself to defeat the person running at a pace you are not used to, hard work was not the only thing you thought that would make you win the race at the very end. You learn that you must have it in yourself to finish the race. You also see that your whole team is supporting you and…
