    you keep going with you training. I felt as like my heart was pumping out of my chest because my chest was hurting so badly. I realized why I am doing this. I am doing this because I don’t want to be someone who is blamed for the lose of our team. I want to be recognized as someone who worked hard and helped out to help our team win.
